    Good Morning, Everyone, and Happy New Year!

    I thought my goal was to finish the memory quilt for my parents (I still will) and to start using up my stash.

    Surprise awaited me - my elder daughter called and asked me to start making a wedding gown! So that means a wedding quilt, also. (She has talked about a double wedding ring quilt for several years.)

    Whoa! What a change to the plans!

    :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Mom doesn't know everything, I guess!

    Nodate set yet, but there have been whisperings about Memorial Day 2011...

    As to the dress, she already picked out patterns that she wants me to work with, and specified beading and embroidery...

    Off we go! :lol:

    Wedding dresses are such a joy to make! I made one for my daughter years ago.

    I hope you can coach me through a little of this! I haven't made anything more difficult than a prom dress so far.

    I'm looking forward to the task. :-D

    How exciting - A Wedding :-)

    I have watched a friend do her daughters gown (she even hand beaded it) It was beautiful. I am not sure I would have the patience but best of luck (you will post a follow up when you have completed it - right??)
