This weekend was the wedding shower of my nephew Gerald Taylor and his bride to be Megan McFall. I was not able to travel to MI to attend but my gift made it's way thanks to the good ole USPS to the shower. I hoped they could tell my thoughts were with them.
When deciding what to design for this very special couple I wanted to honor their contemporary side yet also honor their family sentiments and traditions honoring their Irish heritage. [*Side note: Jerry proposed to Megan while they were traveling throughout Ireland]
So I chose some pretty batiks in colors I felt they liked and then decided to use a traditional pattern. "Irish Chain".
|Irish Chain squares design sewn together.|
|Completed Quilt top on my design wall.|
|Next step quilting completed on my HQ16.|
|Signature on front. I actually did label this quilt on the |
back with pattern name, date, made by, etc.
|Trying to take photo to document yet the wind was not totally cooperating |
;-) heck maybe you can semi see the batik backing I chose.
|I miss the wonderful bridge I used to use while photographing my |
creations. Sadly it's in VA and we now live in PA.
So Until…..stay tune, I hope to be able to post about the other completed quilt soon, I just need to hear it has made it way to it's recipient. May the sun keep shining on us all.
