    Red face Calking wedding quilt finnished. This was quilted by me on the sewing machine.

    The quilt is almost 10x10 feet square and I quilted it on a Janome 6500. The smaller lap quilt is from similar fabrics and is for them to take along to Africa. They will go and teach as missionaries in Uganda for 9 months and we figured the big quilt is just too much to take along so I made them a small one also.The quilt was inspired by the pattern Nice Day in the book Schnibbles Times Two(quilts from 5" or 10" squares) by Carrie Nelson.

    I am so glad I used this pattern. It came out very nice and I plan to make another one using this pattern as inspiration.

    Well done! I can't imagine how much fun that must have been to quilt on your domestic sewing machine. I have FMQ a twin but that's as large as I've attempted. Your quilts and the quilting are beautiful!

    What a beautiful quilting job. I am amazed that you did it on your machine. I so have a problem doing quilting on my old machines.

    What a beautiful gift. I can't image how proud they will be to display it on their bed when they get home. The one they take with will keep them connected to home and comfort them a lot. Great job. A real labor of love on your part. Amazing what can be done on a reg. sewing machine. again Wonderfully done!

    Beautiful, and they will be able to travel and take the lap quilt to remind them how loved they are. Perfect. Best wishes to the new couple!

    Oh, Anna, they are both gorgeous! And what a thoughtful gesture, to make a mini for them to take along.
