My Quilting Journey Part 2 - Dresden Wedding Quilt
I found it difficult to find plum coloured fabrics as opposed to purple but got there in the end. In my travels I ended up with a fabric which I later decided would be perfect for the border but by then I couldn't remember where I bought it from. I then tried http://www.equilter.com/ and luckily there it was on their website - perfect. By the time I finished quilting the quilt they had been married nearly twelve months but it did mean that they had arrived back in Australia to stay for a couple of years so at least I didn't have to post it to them. Its hard to see but around the centre dresden plate I quilted some gum leaves for Kymberley, a maple leaf for Scott, a four leaf clover for Ireland and a loveheart with their initials and their wedding date. Kymberley was thrilled with it as it was something of their own as they are always travelling they haven't really got any possessions of their own. Scott's Mum and Dad came to visit while they were here and they ended up taking it back to Canada for them as now they are on a long trip back to Canada via Africa, Middle East and the UK.
