Quilt for a wedding present

A very dear friend's daughter is getting married in Vanuatu in November. Yes, we're going to the wedding!
I made this quilt with the help of Cherrie, who did all the hard work of embroidering the hearts for Naomi & Mark's wedding gift. Please go check out Cherrie's work, she is one very talented lady.
Maybe I should have ironed it before taking a photo and bragging about it, excuse me.

I have sorted out my problem of hiding on other's blog spots. Yippee.
Have a great weekend. Thanks for popping in and leaving your comments.
Hugs,
Anna

Hi Anna

A beautiful present!! What a wonderful idea, that's one gift they won't get two of. Cherrie's work is gorgeous

Glad you fixed your problem, I've spent the last hour fixing mine, enough is enough though, time to do some work now - you could fiddle around for hours
