One more picture because this couple is
so cute!  We're really happy for them! :)

I thought I would share the quilt I made for my daughter's wedding a couple of years ago.  This is from the book "Sylvia's Bridal Sampler". These are  six inch blocks put together with Irish Chain blocks.  It was a lot of work but it makes for a fun, interesting quilt.

My youngest son is standing next to it in the picture below, just to show how big it is!  He's 6'3".

My husband wrote the poem below as his contribution to the gift :)  Weddings are so fun - looking forward to another one!

Bright Hopes

This is more than a comforter,
It’s more than a bed cover.
This beautiful quilt
From a warm hearted Mother.

It’s hope for the future
Thanks to Kindness and Patience,
Lots of small ‘bits and pieces’
Some of God’s Graces

It started with friendship,
Shored by Sharing and Trusting,
Piece-working a Romance
That Will be Everlasting.

Like scraps sewed together
Your futures will meld.
A Happy Love story
All guile withheld

Yes, it’s more than a coverlet,
This much-treasured quilt,
It’s parts pieced together,
Like the family ... to be built.
