Our family, the Kerr Family celebrated a wedding this weekend! My husbands brother, Bruce, married his soal mate, Marilyn! We are so very happy for both of them!
So Darlene was making a quilt when wedding plans were being made, and Marilyn made an offhand remark to her mom that it would make a great wedding gift, but it was queen size and they had a King size bed. So Darlene came to me for advice on how to make it bigger, and to book my quilting services. I did help,her figure out how to make it bigger, and I got an idea. We had no idea what to get them for a wedding gift, as they both had complete households. So I suggested to Darlene that rather than Paying me to quilt it, I could quilt it as our wedding gift to Bruce and Marilyn. Darlene liked the idea, so that is what I did!
As much as I wanted to be sharing pictures on Instagram like I usually do while I am quilting a quilt, I could not, as Marilyn follows me on Instagram! So these are the 1st pictures I have shown. Her is Brice and Marilyn examining the quilt right after opening it.
The last picture is the back. I love back texture!
A couple of other interesting wedding pictures. I turned around at one point to find my daughter, Kathleen, (also known as Kathleen Quilts) fixing Marilyn's dress! The shoulder seam was coming apart….
So, that is the story of a colabrative quilt! So fun to do this with Darlene!
It was a fabulous day, and we are so happy to welcome Marilyn to the Kerr family! I have a new sister!!!
