Katie's quilt ..

This is the quilt I made for our darling Katherine when she married my son, Levi  … I have finally got the binding and label done on it … and I am quite embarrassed to say they were married in September 2009 .. the quilt was actually done but for those bits on her wedding day ... so I have been very very slack …. But it is done now …. And I guess that is something ..

The centre block I purchased .. it was made by a lady named Lee in 1999 … she stitched that into the block … the needle work on this block is amazing .. the stitches so very very very tiny … I would not be able to ever do work like it … my hands and eyes just would not allow it .. and I was really lucky to get it at a bargain price too …

I wanted to make this as special as I could for my darling daughter in law … her mum had passed away the November before they married .. I wanted to include her Mum in the quilt somehow .. so I had my son email me a photo of Margaret .. and I printed it onto fabric and included it into a crazy patch block …..

My own wedding dress was included in this quilt …. I figured no one would want to wear it … from the early 80’s … it is oh so dated … haha … so most of both the sleeves is in this quilt … the little bride and groom block .. her dress is made from my dress … and the dark red colour .. very similar to what katie wore …

I loved making this for her … and she just loves it … I am pleased it is finished .. and I do know Katie is too … she has waited a long time to have her quilt complete …

here are some close ups of the other blocks ...

and here is a pic of the ring cushion i made for her too ... (almost forgot it!!)

and a photo of the beautiful bride ...
