TWQ

I know that I have mentioned The Wedding Quilt aka TWQ, several times over the past year or so. Well...it is FINISHED!!!!! We delivered it to our son and dil yesterday, so I can now reveal the photos. Thanks to all of you who continued to encourage me on this journey.

The quilt is my own original design, though I was inspired by a design on a gift bag. DD#2 sketched the pattern to size, DD#3 helped choose fabrics and DD#1 did some of my chores so I could get in more quilting time. TWQ measures  95 " square and is hand appliqued and hand quilted. Every stitch was stitched with love and prayers! When I worked on it I called it - "Heirloom Time"!

Without further ado...



















By the way - I entered TWQ in our guild's annual quilt show and it received 1st place in its category! I was surprised but very pleased!


This project was definitely a "journey" from selecting a pattern/design, to choosing fabrics, to appliqueing, to piecing the borders, to marking the quilting designs, to quilting, to fixing the mistakes - but a very fulfilling journey - one that took:



Blessings to each and every one of you wonderful blogging friends!

Heirloom is absolutely the right word here! What a treasure you have created. It is beautiful in design and workmanship (and in one of my favorite color combinations!!). I am not at all surprised that it took 1st in its category. Must be such a good feeling to have it finished--and to be rewarded for all of that work with a winning ribbon! Well done!! : )

Oh, my! It's simply stunning, Doniene! I can only imagine how lovely it is in person. Truly an heirloom to be treasured. It doesn't get much better than a quilt stitched with love and prayers. i always love the story behind the quilt and from its earliest beginnings, this one was truly a labor of love. it just looks like perfection on the bed! I can only imagine how much joy your girl must have when making her bed each morning.

Raewyn said...

Doniene, how could I have missed your beautiful posts? I love this quilt - I do remember seeing it at your house over a year ago but was too polite to examine it too closely - I should have!! It is such an amazing heirloom and looks beautiful on your son's bed. Congratulations on the well deserved win!!!
