    this one will go into the mail as soon as i get some more of the correct size box from the PO. i'm sending it to my niece so she and her hubby can cuddle under it on their sofa.

    it's ok for wedding presents to arrive a year and 4 months late, right? :? :lol:

    Patrice

    It's a georgous quilt - but I thought this one was coming out to me LOL.
    One day I am hoping to be able to make such an heirloom. Thanks for sharing.

    Tisha :D

    It's okay to be late with a wedding present when it's as gorgeous as this. I'm sure they'll love it.

    Beautiful, Patrice. Great job on those half square triangles.
    I always say, better late than never. They will cherish this quilt forever.

    Hey there, Patrice! That's purty! yeah, it's OK for a wedding present to be given that "late" because....uh...they had a lot of gifts at the time of the wedding??? This way they get something a little later on, too....kinda like an Anniversary present. :D You do beautiful work!! ;)
    ahem...DH and I have an anniversary in July... ;) :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

    I think they will love it- no matter how late. You could say it's an early silver anniversary gift. Give them a goal to work for....

    Wow--gorgeous--stunning. You are one to take on a challenge! :D I'd avoid all those little pieces. You are to be admired.

    Hmm--as long as they're still cuddling after all those months... it should be good. :lol:

    Wow, you're never afraid of a challenge, are you? 8) Once they see this, they'll think, who cares if it's late? it's OURS!

    thanks, all, VERY much! :-)

    this is the first quilt i've ever made that i want to make again. i'm usually "so over" a layout by the time i get the top done. i'm going to use a different pallet for the next one, and keep in mind all the things i learned making this one.

    nooooooooooo ... it won't be done in a week. i have to choose my fabs first. that will take ages. i'll probably change my mind 57 times before i settle on the set. :roll: :lol:

    Patrice, it's stunning! You're obviously not scared of the dreaded HSTs!!

    K x

    PS Can you adopt me if you make your family such great gifts?! :D

    Patrice you have a year to present the couple with a wedding gift before it is late.

    that is gorgeous. You are getting me hooked on HST's. May I ask where you got the pattern?

    thanks
    Linda

    I sure hope so, I have one unfinished and it is 14 months after the wedding, with another wedding next month that I haven't even started thinking about, so it is sure to be at least a year before they see it too.

    The quilt is gorgeous btw.
