Better Late than Never

Remember this?

Five and Dime (from Loose Change)
The wedding quilt that didn't make it to the Maine Wedding
Well, I was finally able to present it to the newlyweds at her dad's ranch last night.

They love it!
My LAQ was able to do a quick turnaround once I knew we'd be coming to the West Coast reception in California.  She did a Cool Beans pantograph, my favorite quilting design for this quilt pattern, which, BTW, is made from a Layer Cake and a Charm Pack.  The fabrics, designed by Jen Kingwell, were more loosely woven than most quilting cottons so the raw edge charms frayed really nicely when it was washed.  Too nicely, actually. I was clipping and trimming threads right up to flight departure time!

The bride's dad was also recipient of this fabulously painted work jacket, done by a family friend.

Fabric paint on heavy denim -- WOW!

We're headed to wine country today, reception tomorrow, fly home Monday and dentist on Tuesday.  I'll not be doing any sewing the next few days!


  1. Yay! for the hand delivered wedding quilt. It’s beautiful! The colors are so calming. The denim jacket is unbelievable! I’d be afraid to wear it. Enjoy the rest of your time in Ca. I was out there last week.

  2. Wedding Quilt... you WON!!! It looks gray-t and the newlyweds look happy (and you finished yours before I finished mine.) Congrats!

  3. Woohoo! The quilt looks perfect and the couple looks happy!
    And a big wow over that jacket!

  4. Love gray-dations in the quilt. That jacket must be very stiff.

  5. Congrats on the finish. The bride and groom look thrilled with it.

  6. Beautiful quilt and I must look into raw edge quilting. Wow on that painted much talent out there.
