Is this not the PERFECT QUILT to make for two school teachers getting married this summer?
YES, there is another wedding happening in our family…and we couldn’t be happier!! Quilt Daughter (Basting Beauty Blog Fame) and her fiancé are tying the knot…THIS SUMMER!
Since they announced their engagement last summer, I have been on the look out for a SPECIAL quilt pattern that would reflect both of them…I want it to be modern but not TOO modern. I want it to stand the test of time…I want it to be just as beautiful fifty years from now, as it is today…!
I think this is THE QUILT to do just that! It’s modern but it also has an old fashion feel to it! I also love the positive/negative aspect to it! It adds a bit more interest to it, don’t you think? And there is that ‘School House’ aspect to it, and THEY ARE teachers! PERFECT!!
Seriously…bells and whistles went off when this magazine FELL off the shelf as I was putting away my new magazines purchased down south! I swear…someone/something gave it a nudge…and it FELL off the shelf…It was meant to BE!! I can’t believe that it was sitting on the shelf, at home, the whole time that I was down south LOOKING…
I sent the happy couple a picture of it and they BOTH loved it!! Whew!! So you see, it really was meant to be!
I have three and a half months to ‘get ‘er done’… which is totally do-able! My ‘To Do List’ will get pushed to the wayside but that’s OK!
*NOTE TO SELF*…NEVER make goals and NEVER have a TO DO LIST!! Life happens and quilters have to roll with it!
And speaking of ROLL, I have to loose a few to fit into my new MOB dress! :o)
Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Stitching!~P
