    What do you do when someone presumes you will make a quilt for them? You get busy, right? So, this friend let me know what colors, style, etc, she was using to decorate the baby's room. I got right on it and had the top done in less than a week. Then I got an email from her... apparently she'd always wanted to incorporate her wedding dress into a baby quilt!!! Would I consider....? Well, that project came to a screeching halt. I contemplated for a month, finally decided that if I didn't do it, someone else would. I let her know that the best I could do would be to back the quilt with her wedding dress fabric and use a little for the front. She was thrilled with the results!

    Very nice blessing you gave your friend! Nice work, and very creative with adding the wedding dress fabrics.
