    My long time family friends were supposed to get married this past July. Due to some health issues they postponed the wedding and have yet to set a new date. Thank goodness 'cause it gave me time to finish their wedding present:

    My first QYG and braid

    I recycled a flannel sheet for the backing; the one with the patch was the last strip I did; then I remembered why the sheet was in my sewing basket - there was a big hole in it!

    I love everything about it. Colors, design and it's hand quilted! Did you hand quilt stitch in the ditch? I want to handquilt my king size that is almost ready to quilt and this is my first and I'm looking for ideas.
