Courtney and Morgan's Journey


She asked me to make a signature quilt for her wedding.  It just needs to have a lot of white space... for 300 people to sign.... There will be plenty of burlap and lace... Navy bridesmaid dresses.  Quilting is a really personal thing for me and the thought of being judged by 300 people made me nauseous,but it was for Courtney.

It's made with Edyta Sitar's pattern Journey....Loved the name.


I embroidered the tag on the back.  They were married in a courthouse because it affect his tour of duty in the service and now they are having the ceremony.

Quilting  has been slow. We've been remodeling our kitchen. Exhausting, but so worth it. Life is busy.

What a beautiful quilt! And with a name like "Journey", it's all the more perfect for them.

A kitchen remodel? How exciting! I hope you'll share befores and afters. I dream of a kitchen remodel here but our house is only 8 years old so we've chosen to make several updates to try to be able to live with it the way it is. ;-)

I had been wondering about you. Seems like it has been a while since you posted. I see you have been busy with a quilt. It turned out very good. Work you can be proud of.
