    DGD's wedding quilt flimsy now complete

    On the theory that I might not be able to make a wedding quilt for the DGD when the time comes, I started this is 2003, when she was 2. Somehow it got pushed to the back of the closet. When I came across it a couple of weeks ago, I finished the top with the 9 patches. I am now unable to quilt such a large top, so I am handing it to a LAQ friend of mine. It's still way ahead of need, but it is one UFO that is very close to completion.

    Wow! your quilt is gorgeous. I love the simple elegance of it and how all the colors play together. It has an Amish feel to me and so it will be loved in 2000 to infinity. Great job. I wanna be you when I grow up :-) and make such wonderful memories.

    Such a beauty! One wonders what YOU could do if you could quilt it yourself?
    If she doesnt like it there are, no doubt, hundreds on the Quilting Board who would give it a home, including me

    I agree with the Amish reference & I also kind of get a Pennsylvania Dutch vibe from it. Whatever the genre, it's beautiful! You should be super proud of yourself... a stunning quilt & done years before it needs to be! WTG, girl! I wish I were a tenth that organized!

    Beautiful , so show us when it is quilted. Will you keep this a secret or will you show her and tell her it will be hers someday?

    What a wonderful quilt. Kudos to you for dragging it out and finishing it. It's a great feeling to have a monkey off your back. Thanks for sharing.
