A Wedding And A Quilt!

 These two gorgeous little girls were my flower girls. Michelle is on the left and Krystina on the right.
Twenty-two years later, the two of them
have grown into beautiful women.
 Last Saturday Michelle and Matt "Said I Do"
 This is Cheryl, the mother of the bride. 
Cheryl and I have been friends for forty years!
 Krystina and Michelle consider the boys their cousins.
 Having fun on the dance floor.
I can finally show you the quilt I'd been making for Michelle and Matt. Their house is very modern and Michelle didn't want anything florally. I have to admit I was so out of my comfort zone with this. From buying the fabrics, to designing the quilt. But I'm pleased with how it turned out.
I used this painting they have in the lounge as inspiration. It took me a while to work out how to do the woven corner.
It is to go over the back of the couch.

It was a lovely wedding and we all had a wonderful time.
