    Finally finished wedding memories wall hanging for son and DIL on Christmas eve. Took these photos very quickly and they aren't as clear as they could be.

    I used the groomsman's tie, which was also made from the bridesmaid's fabric, in the quilt and used one of the wedding charms DIL was given on the day to pin the tie down. I also used organza, satin and crystals from her dress.

    The lavender/blue colour was very difficult to match/co-ordinate so I was limited in my choice of additional fabrics but was happy with the end result.

    My husband cross-stitched the wedding bells as his contribution.
