Wedding Wishes

I got Karen and Cory's quilt back from LTW and thought I would share the quilting on it with you. Here is a corner. I love the swag and the border treatment. She used a light aqua thread and it is just perfect with this quilt!

Here is my label and you can see the aqua thread up close.

LTW used an overall pantograph with large flowers for the center part. We wanted a large quilting pattern so the signed squares on the back would not get lost nor would the pieced squares on the front. She chose a beautiful couple of border patterns though to make it look a little more custom.

You can see the blocks a little better here.

This is LTW and Karen's attempt to hold it up so I could get a photograph! HAHAHA!!

Please remember that LTW will do quilts for you too all you have to do is contact her! Her work is beautiful. (See the link to her on my side bar)

I did all the hand stitching on the binding in about 3 hours last night and boy am I ever sorry today as my left shoulder is killing me! I am very happy with how it came out though. I gave it to Karen this morning when I got to work and she is just thrilled with it too!!

I love the quilting! It came out great. I don't think I could bind a quilt in three hours, even if you paid me!
