Well, the top is finished, FINALLY


Good grief, where is this month going? It's already half over, the wedding is in just under two weeks, son is moving out this coming week, and mom is beginning to think she's going to be committed before it's all over with.
I finally got the top of the wedding quilt finished. It is looking like it will not be quilted before the wedding. There just will not be enough time with all of the family coming in for the wedding. My sister offered to quilt it for me on her long arm, but that would involve sending it to Kansas and I just don't know if I want to trust the mail system with this top.
Anyhow, here is a picture of the finished top, and a closer view of some of the blocks. And as usual, blogger is not cooperating and the pictures ended up at the top of the post in the reverse order. I do wish they would fix that little quirk in the system.
The top does still need a good over all pressing.

Oh, Carol! It's lovely -- just lovely. They will love it. I don't know if it's any consolation, but when my daughter left for college, I just cried and cried for a long time -- and I still really miss her! Hope the wedding goes great -- and that you are feeling better about everything soon!

My goodness what a beautiful gift!!! I don't think I'd trust the mail with that one either. Gorgeous!!!!!

What site do you use for hosting your pictures? The only one I've been happy with, for putting pictures exactly where I want them, is flickr. No matter what you use, after they're in the post, you can click and drag them where you want them to go, but it's a pain, lol.
