See those little beach balls?

The last groomsman, just ahead of the Flower Fairies, and the person who officiated the wedding, both took care of the new couple's kitty while they were on their honeymoon. In addition to washing all their pre-wedding-mania-time dishes (the apartment has no dishwasher) the two guys saved all the beach balls from the ceremony, blew them up again, and left them all over the apartment to greet the happy couple upon their return! LOL! Nice people rock!

Name that flower...

I cannot remember what this is called. It looks like giant Rose Mallow. I cut it at a local flower farm, for the wedding, and when my florist saw it (when she helped me load more flowers into my car) she said it's very hard to get and was pleased I'd found some. So, if no one here knows what it is, I'll ask the florist when I bring back her plastic tub this week. :-)

First time placed on a bed!

The strange part about making the king-sized quilt was not having access to a king-sized bed to check it out on. So I am happy to report that it fit beautifully when we tried it out on the king-sized bed at the inn where we stayed. The pillow shams are (deliberately) standard size, since that's what the recipients use. During the wedding reception, I had all the fun of bringing four sisters-in-law up to this room to show off the quilt. That was fun, especially as littlest granddaughter came along! ♥

The Wedding Quilt ~ Autumn Panel

The balloon represents Son's birthday season.
The geese are flying south and the leaves are falling.
Yet there is time left for a sailboat race.
And there's the ferry coming in to dock.
The large island off to the right represents Rock Point,
where the Groom went to youth camp some Summers.

The Wedding Quilt ~ Spring Panel

The Mountain at the back is Vermont's Camel's Hump
The balloon represents the Bride's birthday season, and is shown in her favourite colour.
The three white trees represent the three Shad trees planted at our house last Spring,
and in the foreground is a garden.
Note the female Cardinal in a Shad tree. Her nest is over in the Cherry tree.
While I like the waterfall and rainbow, my favourite item on the whole quilt is
the Flying Goose ~ a symbol for the Holy Spirit, to bless them along their way.
