And we are Finished!

Here's the final pictures of the Grandgirl's Wedding Quilt.

I used clips to sew down the binding on the front.  Worked wonderfully!  (A tip: fold the mitered corner in from the unsewn side. That way you have a smooth sew down in the corner. First corner was difficult, until I figured it out.)  If I finished more often maybe I'd remember these things... as is I have to learn new things every time.

Here's the label with the "I love you" symbols... Mine has a green thumb, and his...

has a purple thumb. (He's quite accident prone.)

Our on the back lawn

 one this way, one that way.

Some close ups... Did you see the latest Quilter's Newsletter Magazine on sale now?
 "5 new and fresh patterns" (apparently on the DVD).  It isn't my quilt, but a twin, for sure.
 Go check it out. See what you think.
So that's that. It'll be carry on luggage tomorrow, but I'm not publishing this until she sees the quilt, so it'll be confusing as to when. Today is the 17th, and the funny thing is that she is being married right now... as I finished up the quilt. (Her religion has a special ceremony at the Temple called Sealing. We weren't invited for that.) Talk about 11th hour. I hope I learned to whip my ponies and keep on keeping on to finish things. I'm tired of that 11 hour thing.
Taking along a little paper piecing to work while I'm there. (Yes, you can hand sew them.)  I want to make some pot holders - again with some visual puns.
Have a wonderful week - without me. (Sniff)  I'll try to catch up when I get back.


  1. It's beautiful, Terri! I love it! I know she will, too. The label is so cool. You did good.
    I know what you mean about stressful 11th hour sewing. Yipes.

  2. Wonderful wonderful wonderful Terri! Big congrats on getting it done. It is so cheerful. Well done for labelling it- a real heirloom. Hopefully you can go flop for a while and so something without a deadline. :-) Great job!

  3. This is a beautiful quilt and such a great label! Congratulations to the newlyweds, and to you for finishing the quilt on time.

  4. Congratulations on finishing such a beautiful quilt! Your granddaughter and new husband will have a treasure of love for many years to come!

  5. Your quilt is wonderful! I would love to make one just like it! The label is so sweet. You've done good!

  6. The wedding quilt turned out great! My 'thumb' would have to be brown, since I can't seem to grow anything. I keep thinking I need to make that block for my step-sister (that's a new thing, still not used to calling her that, since we've known each other for over a quarter century before our parents married). She has taught sign language since before I knew her.

  7. Oh Terri - this is absolutely gorgeous . Your grand daughter and her husband are going to LOVE it- and its going to be come a family heirloom that they treasure for years to come.

  8. Wow wow wow! Terri, that's amazing! I know they are going to treasure that forever!!

    By the way, where did you find the ASL "I Love You" paper piecing pattern? I may need to make a couple of those for my grandkids' quilts!

  9. Holy cow that is awesome. Lucky granddaughter.

  10. LOVE the I love your hands!! (The purple thumb cracks me up!!!) Love labels with such personality!
