I have some very happy news to share with the world today. Let's see if you can guess what it is from these quilty pictures:
Pretty! And artsy, too, there in the tree.
Didn't guess from that block pattern name? Okay, try this one:
This is a lovely block, but I swear I am never making it again. (Which means, of course, that I will make it again because it's just so darned challenging, but would look lovely in a quilt.)
Still didn't get it? Well, this will do it:
It's hard to photograph white fabric, but I tried. Of course, that's the paper doll pattern that is one of my RSC15 projects. The veil is just tacked on since I'll have to remove it for quilting. Actually, I'll probably find some tulle instead of this netting and just stitch it into the block.
For anyone who wants to know, the top block is called Single Wedding Ring and is very easy to piece. The pink flower block is called Bride's Bouquet and was a real bear to piece, even though I paper pieced it. I actually think it would be easier to hand piece this one than to paper piece it. Fitting those yellow triangles into squares was a fairly bad idea!
Before anyone asks, there will be a wedding quilt for them, but it won't be a surprise. I want them to choose the colors and some of the fabrics so that they can enjoy it for a long time. I'll put some special touches in there, though, so there will still be some surprise.
Anyway, that's the happy news from this quarter! Hope you are having a happy day too. And if you have any wedding-planning advice, I'd be glad to hear it!
