    This is a wedding quilt I made for my Future DILs brother who was married last Saturday.

    The pink fabric was used in the wedding.

    I started on Monday and finished yesterday. Didnt sew on Wed..

    5 days from start to finish... Whew,,, wiping the sweat from my brow...

    Actually, I gave it to them today.

    I was in such a hurry as I am returning to work on Tues after 2 1/2 years, and I wanted to get it done first. Once I start work, I doubt Ill get as much sewing in.

    They were very appreciative. I had to tell them that it was the same fabric from the wedding. Jeff said "I was pretty busy, I dont know what was behind the trees"..lol

    but I think they liked it, even though Jeff said he would decorate his whole house in camo if he could....lol

    Judy--that is a really pretty quilt you made. I love the colors-very soft and romantic. The label really makes it special too. You have been a VERY busy girl!!

    Gorgeous quilt, great label! I bet you don't want to start another project until you've had time to recover! Good luck on going back to work!

    I just had a message from Jeff's Mom.

    She said they went to visit their Grandma today and all they talked about was the quilt...

    I guess they like it...

    How did you do the labels? On your computer and print on cloth?

    Lovely quilt!

    I used Bubble Jet wash on the fabric, ironed it to freezer paper and fed it through my printer. I scanned fans that were used in the wedding and printed them onto the fabric.
