I admit it's quite odd to gift someone something with a name so putrid when you're wishing them well on their upcoming nuptials. BUT I'm quite odd anyway, so I thought it'd be hilarious.
I made a second scrap vomit quilt (because goodness knows I have enough scraps to make several more...) and halfway through, I decided it'd be a great gift for the hub's cousin Colin and fiance Joanna. They're one of my favourite couples... Always so funny and they make family get-togethers a bit more fun. So I figured they'd appreciate the crazy things that go into a scrap vomit quilt. This particular one had garlic, Twizzlers, teddy bears, Halloween candy, balloons, artichokes etc. I left the clowns out because you just never know if people think they're funny or just plain scary!
The lovely hubs is holding up the quilt because he has quite an impressive wingspan, and also, it was too damn cold to go outside to take pictures of it.
Strangely, when I was thinking about colours for block B, I had no idea what colours they liked and I bravely went with Kona Peacock and Crocus. I found out today that those are two of their favourite colours. I am a mind reader, apparently.
In my card to them, I asked if they'd like a wedding quilt made with colours of their choice. She wrote me today and said YES PLEASE. She loves handmade things and it's always so nice to make a quilt for someone who appreciates them :) And today, she sent a picture of her on the sofa under the quilt... and their dog Ziggy trying to steal the quilt. I told her that quilts are basically animal magnets and you just have to keep an eye on them!
Joanna and Colin, we wish you many blessings and years of wedded bliss :) Can't wait for the wedding in May! Love you guys!
