    Serena's Wedding Quilt

    It was requested that I post pictures of my daughter's wedding quilt - way back when I asked for help in May 2019. Thank you so much for your help, I'm such a newbie at this.

    I just did the best I could. My husband estimated that it took me 180 hours for the quilting alone. (I don't know but I might be a slow quilter) My daughter cried when she opened it, and explained to her new hubby all about quilts and quilting. I wrote their names on it with the wedding date.

    It doesn't matter the time it takes its always worth the reaction and appreciation. It's finished and it's pretty. I like the feathers too.... Now go ahead and start two baby quilts😉 , one boy one girl, so it will be ready, when eventually it's time to start a family-husband won't mind the hours😂😂

    Her crying on opening it makes it all worthwhile! My daughter cried when she opened a family cookbook I had put together for her as a surprise. Made my day! Your quilt is wonderful.

    The quilting is done exquisitely and compliments the quilt design nicely
    Create something beautiful from scraps.

    You did a beautiful job, both front and back and your quilting is lovely. I am a "slow quilter" too but it increases my accuracy, or at least that's my excuse. LOL

    Beautiful quilt and worth the time it took.
    People will see your quilts long after you're gone - NOT your housework!
