At last I can show you what was in the box!

Before the wedding I posted a picture of a beautifully wrapped package in a golden box adorned with dragon-flies. I couldn't reveal what was inside because my wonderful Mother-in-law sometimes looks at my blog. Amidst the final weeks preparation for our wedding I decided to make quilts for my mum and Tony's, these are the results.

Every stitch is stitched with love, warmth and care especially for these two fantastic women who I am lucky to have in my life.

This quilt is for my Mum-in-Law who is so supportive and caring, she is a real gem and I love having someone in my life who is as equally passionate about creating art.
The church where Tony and I married is in the background.

My Mum's quilt. Thank you mum for all you have done for me and for always being there, no matter what.

I free motion quilted a rose design in each of the 49 blocks.

I love the two ladies that I made these quilts for. One for giving life to me and the other for giving life to the most perfect person in my life, my husband Tony.
Thank you.
