Several months before my niece and her fiance got married, I began working on a quilt for them using Auntie's Diamonds by Jamie Mueller (Sunflower Seeds) - a Moda Bakeshop Recipe.I was confident I could get it done by the wedding, but it didn't happen. Last week I was finally about to really put those final touches on it, finishing quilting all the adjectives they requested, and nervously sent it Priority Mail.
More specific were the words I "wrote on the brown border of their quilt: The chorus of the song they had their first dance to and 1 Corinthians 13 - all the "i's" were dotted with ♥. One of the pink rectangles is a rough replica of the Unity Cross they used in their wedding ceremony. Some of the words I included in the main part of the quilt were:
- unfailling love
- God gave me you
