This is block number 18 for me in the 20-block (plus borders...sigh) Civil War Bride Quilt. Two more to go and then I can get going on the borders.
Huge thanks to my BFF Ola for suggesting the wedding cake idea. It makes total sense to me that they would want cake (EVERYBODY likes cake!!). I used to decorate birthday and wedding cakes, so this block totally makes sense to our family theme for this quilt.
Here is the happy couple...the bride wants the groom to put the fish down and wash his hands BEFORE he cuts her a piece of cake. :o)
I'm really having fun with this quilt and wish I had more time to dedicate to it. Once I get blocks all glued up, they are portable, but until then, they tie me to the basement (and the stash...) as I try and decide on colors. I can only spend so much time down there pretending to do laundry before the family realizes that there are no clean clothes. LOL (not to mention all the other projects I want to be working on...)
Is everyone watching the Olympics?!? I am SO enjoying them! The short track skating has been fun to watch, men's and women's. And tonight, more figure skating. My husband has been grousing about Ice Dancing being considered a sport. I told him he should try it before he makes that comment. :o)
