I have know Alexandra since she was 3 years old! She has always had a very special spot in my heart. When she told me that Tim finally popped the question, I immediately pulled the fabrics for the wedding quilt that I couldn’t wait to make for them. Usually I always ask what color they would like but I already knew what I wanted to do. It had to remind me of the beautiful and talented girl I watched grow up. I wanted colors that were fresh and fun, and a statement color that was bold and could stand its own. That’s my Alexandra- After selecting my colors, it’s always painstaking fun to set them in just the right parts. I make sure I have balance and that it has the right amount of just what I’m looking for. When I feel I’m on the right track I will start cutting and placing to get a better view.
As always, theres the beautiful pile of fabric scraps around my feet!
And eventually, it’s time to put it all together!
Off to my very talented quilter Norma Riehm with strict instructions to take extra care to make it wedding gift perfect! And perfect was right-as always Norma, thank you and beautiful job! Next up, sewing on the binding and shearing off the excess.
We wish you many years of love, happiness and God’s blessings!!!
