I made my deadline and finished the wedding quilt. I won’t even go into the details of my mess up on the edging. It’s fixed and looks great. I was so pleased with the outcome. I quilted it with a simple stitch in the ditch around the squares with variegated thread. As I was sewing the edging to the flannel backing the batting got puffy and soft. If you’ve never worked with Carolina Chambray I highly recommend it. The depth of the color is amazing. I wanted to keep this for myself and am a little bummed I didn’t have time to get some fabulous pictures of it on the gingham covered hay bales they had for seating by the river.
Halloween weekend was spent in a whirlwind. Jeffrey and I met up in Phoenix from separate locations, drank some wine and soaked in the warm air with out a child in tow.
Friday we headed to our friends ranch on the Verde River for their wedding. After a filling dinner of Navajo Tacos we pulled out the sleeping bags and solidly slept till dawn.
The day was beautiful. I was able to take a brief run on the dusty warm dirt roads and then frosted my first wedding cake!
Sunday I was home. Hard going from the nice warm desert in Fall to November in Seattle.
