This quilt was made as a wedding gift for niece, Brooke, and her husband, Gavin.
Brooke and Gavin spent time looking at books and magazines while I noted the types of designs which appealed to them, and got them to pick out some fabrics.
A basket full of fabric was shown to Brooke on her wedding day, along with a sketch of the proposed quilt, but the quilt has taken some time to complete.
Presented, finally, to the bride and groom, now parents of two lovely girls, one going to kindy, on New Years Day 2006, just before I start working on the wedding quilt for Brooke’s brother.
PS 2009 update
Make that three beautiful girls, one at school, one kindy , one little one!
