Look at my youngest daughter's Big Catch!
No...Not the fish.   That GUY to her right!
That was last year in Mexico...the fish is real by the way.  And the WEDDING...
is la little over one week away.   
(Mother's note:  She had better scarifice catching the biggest fish or a divorce might follow.)
My daughter is so organized that the day after her engagement party last summer, she had us gather to make hundreds of jars of strawberry jam to give as wedding favors.
I'm sure she is too busy to be reading this now so I can tell you how excited I am that I just took their quilt that I FINISHED IN be quilted.   Doing their three initials on blocks arranged helter skelter style. 
 Why can't their initials   L  A  M   not also stand for Love And Marriage.  They Can.  They Do.
 Have never made a larger size quilt.  Will show you later.  

She chose that fan fabric last year
while helping me at a quilt show.
Never had a clue it was for a wedding quilt.
I picked out the others shown with it.
Letter L..too big for the scanner so the right side
is missing.   This was a reject.  Sewed the Ls backwards.
Oops.   Had a number of rejects...almost enough for
another quilt.  The letters were easy to put into block form.   


  1. Congratulations on the Big day and finishing the quilt!

  2. Love the colors and your design! Terrific, can't wait to see the whole thing! Congratulations! Catherine and Bob
