TOPIC: Some QR/some NQR - DS got engaged

Re: Some QR/some NQR - DS got engaged 18 Sep 2011 08:57 #69425

That's what I might resort to, Agnes. No sense rushing if the greens are wrong and it will end up being a disaster.
If i can get it all together in time, that's good, but if not....

Kathy--Lovely quilt pattern. May take a while to find the right greens so why not red and white for the wedding gift and then this for sometime down the road?

Yes, Lotti - that's exactly it. The book is called "Six Halves Make a Whole Lot More." It is a collection of quilts that can all be made from six 1/2 yard cuts of fabric. One of the quilts is called "Irish Mist." After ironing and starching all the fabrics, I am unhappy with the way three of the "mediums" go with with rest (too olive-y). I pulled those out, laid out the fabrics I feel play well together and left them hanging on the back of the loveseat for at least 24 hours so I can see them in every variety of light (natural daylight/evening). As I walked by them for the next day or two, I like them together immediately upon seeing them grouped like that. The others definitely have to go to another project and I will look for more blue-green mediums.

And because I was so dissatisfied with the fabrics, I am wondering if I should just make something else? DS likes red - she likes green. But since he is my son ,maybe I should go with what he likes and make a red and white quilt? Like a double Irish chain so I can then hand quilt the open areas to make it more special? I will have to think about it. Finding the right greens would go a lng way toward helping me like the Irish Mist quilt idea again probably.


Loveinquiltin - She knew he was going to ask at some point soon, but not that day. He completely surprised her! I was glad he was able to pull it off and surprise her.

Kathy,
Congratulations to everyone-your son, his fiancee and both families! Planning a wedding is such a happy time; being the mother of the groom is the easy gig, too :wink:

What does the pattern Irish Mist look like?

Congrats to all the happy people involved! I'm from MI also and have heard of many proposals at that particular place. Did your future DIL have any idea of what was about to happen? She'll treasure that memory forever and love your son all the more for making it special! On a different note, what is the Irish Mist pattern? The name is intriguing an d of course makes me envision the lovely greens of Ireland (not that I've seen them personally...)

Congratulations to your son and his future bride, and to you and your husband on receiving a daughter-in-law! We live within a few miles of MSU. If I had been listening really hard about then would I have heard his question and her resounding "YES!"? We'll never know for sure! Good luck on all the wedding quilts in the coming year! I'm sure they will all be beautiful because they will be stitched with love and joy!

Thanks for the good wishes, everyone! I see in my euphoria, I repeated myself as I was moving paragraphs around (forgot to delete one!) :oops:

I have two sisters who each have a child getting married next year, too. I make all my nieces and nephews wedding quilts so yes, I will be VERY busy this year. The last wedding quilt I did took me two years to get done. But I keep telling myself I WILL BE MORE DEDICATED. I WILL MAKE THE TIME. I WILL GET THEM DONE. I think getting them done within the first year of marriage is a remarkable improvement, don't you? :wink:
