    I got this quilt done about 9:00 Friday night. I came home threw it in the washer and dryer and then on Saturday, folded it up nice and neat into a gift bag and gave it as a wedding gift Saturday Afternoon.

    The first label I made, I spelled his name wrong, I had two m's in Timothy, he spells it with one. I had to make a new label. I am very thankful that I shortened it to "Tim" when I stitched their names around the quilt. I would not have been able to undo that!!!

    The pictures sure look washed out. The colors are much brighter than this!

    Thank you Roseville! I do my labels on the embroidery unit on my machine. I have a Bernina 630 with an embroidery unit. I have not learned to do much else besides labels on it yet :)

    Thank you. I got the colors from their wedding registry. It is the colors of their every day plates. They asked for 3 place settings of the four colors, lemon yellow, orange, blue and green. I printed up a picture from Macy's of the plates and used that to find the fabrics that best matched what my printer printed. They didn't list hardly any linens so this may only match their kitchen, but hopefully will look good thrown on the couch!
