Wedding Quilt

Front of quilt
Back of quilt
As I mentioned in a previous post my 3rd boy got married this summer. I have made quilts for all my kids (expect my amazing daughter) quilts when they got married.
I got this pattern from a quilt magazine and chose a selection of blue, white and cream prints. 
I love the way it turned it. Its calming and peaceful.
I quilted this quilt myself. Its only the second quilt that I have ever quilted. I am blessed to have an awesome friend who has a long arm and is willing to share.

Here is the label that I made to go on it.
The date is their actual wedding date.

I made matching pillowcases to go along with the quilt. I appliqued Mr. and Mrs. on the front. I hadn't done applique in a while, but it was easy. Just had to ask my daughter a couple of stupid questions. lol.

Ring Bearer Pillows

My third boy just got married this summer and his wonderful bride asked me to make her some ring bearer pillows. Being in another state I just kind of went off of pictures of ones that she had said that she liked. Her wedding colors were purple, grey and yellow.
I think that these pillows turned out perfect. And better yet so did the bride. 
I got the yellow ribbon and the purple flower from The Ribbon Retreat. The rest of the ribbons and the fabric I got from a local craft store.

Jacks Birthday Quilt

Jungle Print Fabrics
This was the quilt that I did for my grandson Jack. This was for his 6th birthday. He was so excited to get this. I have done a quilt and pillow case for all my grandchildren, I still have two more to go this year. 
This is the label that I made for it.
This a picture of both the
quilt and the pillowcase.
