How to make a wedding quilt for Yve and Bren


Comments:

Jessy sweet enough without sugar

Truly a work of art, Nonna

You are beyond talented, and I know they are beyond happy with that incredible gift.

Thankyou dear Jessy...

you are very, very, kind.

Beyond happy is a good description of their faces when they opened the parcel!

Not only

is it beautiful, completely custom-made and unique, expertly-crafted, and a labor of love – but it also has personal significance, which is probably the coolest thing of all about this. Wow! You have outdone yourself, Nonna! Kudos!

Thankyou:))

... that means so much!

When I read

how it reflects their travels, it reminded me of one of my favorite children’s books – The Josefina Story Quilt. It’s a beautifully illustrated book about a quilt that incorporates into its design the events of an American pioneer family as they traveled by covered wagon to their new home in the west. Thanks for the reminder; I may have to track this down for my granddaughter. :)

Oh..

yes, you must:))

Every applique

& every stitch & color in this quilt must be immensely meaningful to Y & B as well as to you. What a lovely, full-of-caring, beautiful gift!

Thankyou dear Ruth...

... that is very sweet of you…

You are right though. This quilt was a definite labour of love, and with every block that I stitched, I put my heart and soul into it :)

Mary Hawkins is ignoring cheers on this site for now. I still like you!

What an amazing gift!

Congratulations! That’s really an heirloom…

Thankyou Mary...

... I think it is something that they will treasure for a long time to come… Certainly a lot of love went into this quilt :)

It's lovely

Could you show a close up of each square and explain what it means?

Super to see such loving creativity!

Thankyou :)

If you go across here Ume has all the blocks photographed and an explanation of each one on Flickr!

Found it

after I’d made the comment.

I LOVE it. Enjoyed the SA connection as well.

(BTW, I had a group of women fromRotary make a ‘group quilt’ symbolising the projects the Rotary Annes did. It worked really well and was auctioned off to raise funds. Before it was auctioned, I had pictures taken. I will try to find the pictures and scan them in if you are interested.)

Heh..

...glad you found it!

I would love to see pics of the group quilt if you don’t mind. Thankyou :)

JudithKD Requests no links, tweets, or shared content ...thx!

Nonna,

So glad this is finally done and done to your satisfaction.

What a wonderful friend and mother you are!

Best—

Thankyou dear Judith...

... you know,I was torn about it being finished. I wanted to give it to them, but I had put such a lot of myself into this quilt, that it was like saying goodbye to someone special.

Many thanks anyway. I certainly was very, very, happy with how it all came together:)

heheee...

thanks KM. There certainly is a lot more than just a few bits of fabric. I certainly enjoyed making this, and I appreciate you taking the time to look at it….!

Have you been across here to have a look at the blocks individually and an explanation of each :)

Lovely

It’s beautiful, meaningful, hand-made with love, and meant to be used for comfort and warmth. Wonderful gift!

Thankyou so much...

... well it certainly is being used and loved. It looks superb on their bed !!
