Well, folks, it's time..............
Time for the big reveal.........................
What is it going to be???????????????????????
This weeks installment on my blog will reveal........................
my parent's golden anniversary double wedding ring quilt!
Sorry to those of you who may have thought I know of a way to make millions. But, I do have to admit something. When it comes to parents, I hit the jackpot! I have been blessed with two of the most loving, caring, nurturing, encouraging, AMAZE-BALLS parents in the world! This quilt top is not perfect, neither am I. But, I know my parents will love it regardless of it's flaws, just as they love me, regardless of mine. It truly has been a labor of love. I cannot wait for my quilter, Ann, to work her "mad skills" on it.
More photos? Did someone say they wanted to see more photos?????
Well, alrighty then!
(Imagine trumpets playing a fanfare!)
(Insert Olympic theme music)....this was truly a marathon quilt making session!
What am I calling it? I never thought I would be naming quilts, but, alas, I shall! I will call this quilt.........
Yeah, I know, I know, very original. Well, there are a few reasons I am calling it this, not only for the obvious reasons. Mom and Dad's wedding rings are both golden. It IS after all, my parent's Golden Anniversary for which I made this quilt. And, I love the song "Golden Ring" by George Jones, and Tammy Wynette. (Even though the song does NOT depict my parents nuptials!) (I can't help that I am a little bit country!)
A song? Did someone want to hear the song?
I love classic country music! OH! Hey! I DID reveal something about myself!
It's been a long work week for me. Six days of flying, and I am so ready to enjoy being home for a few days. I have some Quilt of Valor projects I am working on. And.................
this box of goodies from Alycia were waiting for me when I got home!
Thanks again Alycia for my little get away last week, AND for this box of scraps! I really, really appreciate it! You will be seeing these again in some kind of quilt, sometime soon!
Don't forget to visit Alycia's blog for the QOV block drive she is hosting!
I love hearing from you all!
Thanks for all of the encouragement!
