Wedding Guest Message Quilt

Our son Brian married his sweet girlfriend Lauren in May. Seventy of the wedding guests wrote messages on 5" squares (backed with freezer paper) using fabric pens. And here's the finished quilt. It was hard to get good photos, but you get the basic idea. The squares are Kona White, the dark fabric is a batik, and the outer border is a Hoffman print called "Kaya." The backing is solid blue and the binding is solid gold.

New Book: Splash of Color!

Keep an eye out for Jackie Kunkel's new book: Splash of Color from That Patchwork Place.
See Jackie's website here: CVQuiltworks. And visit her blog too. Jackie is a dynamic quilter here in Connecticut who is also a pilot! She's a certified Judy Niemeyer quilt teacher, and she's the founder and organizer of the New England Air Museum Quilt Show (coming up later this month). 
And not only that, she's a wonderful person and lots of fun.
