This weeks flaunt its a top




This is my version of a disappearing 9 patch made from fabrics bought at a sale of the late Pauline Sisson's stash. It will be a special quilt to remember Pauline by. I will have it quilted later as for the next 5-6 weeks I will be busy with sewing for DS#2 wedding on Oct 31st. I have his coat and the best mans to make plus a cloak for DH and alter my dress (medieval) embroider designs for the back and front of DS coat the wedding is a Celtic one and guests have been invited to dress in medieval style I have never been one to refuse an invite to dress up in whatever style. DH has decided on a cloak rather than a monk's habit to wear to the wedding.
I will do a post about the Celtic hand fastening wedding when I find out more information about it, DD and SIL did the hand tying in their wedding 3 1/2 years ago.

A very special quilt! I'm starting to feel totally depressed - my flaunt (quilty) is another tiny one!
