30th Anniversary

Today my parents celebrate their 30th anniversary!  Happy Anniversary to them!
(Here they are at Versaille during our trip to Paris last year.)
It's been no secret that this quilt is their 30th anniversary present.  This weeked, in anticipation, I finished putting the binding on. I came home from vacation and the quilt was waiting for me at the post office, freshly quilted and waiting for its binding.
Now I just need to add a label and a hanging sleeve.
Judi from Green Fairy Quilts did the machine quilting.
I really love how this quilt came out.  Judi did a great job quilting it.  Soon it will hang in my parent's beach house.

  1. Happy Anniversary to your parents! That is an awesome accomplishment and encouragement to all of us!

    This is a truly beautiful and amazing quilt! From the piecing of the lucious colors to the quilting! Bravo!

  2. Wow! That is just amazing! So beautiful! I bet they loved it!

  3. Oh, they must be delighted! Your mom looks JUST like you!

  4. It's gorgeous !!

    I have a question though for you. I want to make that pattern too for a quilt for my sister and I was wondering if you paper pieced the whole thing or not ? I don't know what to do because I feel like it would be more accurate if I was paper piecing it but I don't see myself making a whole quilt like this.. so what did you do ?
