This is my first prototype, it has not been quilted yet, which will improve the look a lot. I think the next one should have more contrast. There is room to write in indelible ink where I will add a verse and sign and date it. Here goes

    Quirky. I see can see someone getting a laugh out of it. I definitely smiled.

    I would have to know the bride and groom VERY well to put that on a quilt. It wouldn't be my first choice, but if the couple is into it - go for it!

    Those are so funny! I think the thread colours are perfect, just the right amount of definition.
