Our own royal wedding


The Gig
Copyright © Cheryl Coville 2011
 A while back we mentioned that we were making a little white sweater to wear to an outdoor summer wedding. That was the long-anticipated wedding of Coconut Number 3. That joyous occasion took place last weekend and what a wedding it was!!!  A beautiful bride and a handsome groom. A picture perfect day full of hope and happiness and promise.

Now, we can reveal what we gave the happy couple. And, really, what else would we make for such an occasion? A quilt, of course! But not just any quilt. No. We made a quilt that reflects the personalities of the bride and groom who are both performers.

Quilty details for the discerning..... hand appliqué, hand embroidery, machine pieced borders, hand quilting. Approx. double bed size. Cotton fabric. Original design. Howling dog up front inspired by Duke. Cassie approved (as you can see in the first photo).
