I know, I really neglected my blog, but I had other, more important, things to do!
Quilting DD got married last friday!!

Quilting DD made lots of comments/jokes that I should make a double weddingring quilt, even before travelling to NY where SoninLaw proposed. I kept saying: no way.
When she was in NY she texted that she bought a batting. I thought it was for a quilt she was working on and told her the batting was too small. She replied: "oh no Mum, I already got a batting for that one, it will be 2.50x2.50 mtr. It has to be, otherwise it won't be big enough for our bed ".
When we layered her quilt a few weeks later, it turned out to be 2.00x2.00 and we kept teasing her with her "big"quilt....
Ofcourse I made her a quilt.... and ofcourse i had to make mine 2.50x2.50 mtr!!
I sewed and quilted every day, with an occasional break while waiting for fabric to arrive from the Fabric Shack.
DD was very surprised and happy with my gift. She didn't expect a big quilt at all because "it's just not possible to do in just a few months"
It can, just keep calm and quilt like mad..
After I finished, I haven't touched a needle. Done with quilting.
I cleaned my sewingroom yesterday. Perhaps I'm ready to enter the quilter's world again in a few weeks.
for this "happily ever after quilt" I used the metro-ring pattern and ruler. I will show and review this in a later post!
