This is my cousin Rick and his GORGEOUS wife Katrina. They are 2 of my most favoritest people in the whole wide world!
They have been locked in a blissful marriage for going on 18 years.
This is what they looked like on the day they committed to keep each other for good.
Here are a few examples of the things that this experiment is joy has produced:
They make good looking new people too don't they?
Anyway, I decided that since it had been a while since I had done something to celebrate them and their marriage it was time to make them a quilt, I mean they earned it didn't they? Let me preface this with saying, I wouldn't make a quilt like this for just anyone...this one had a lot of work in it! Not so much the piecing but the quilting is some of my favorite work yet.
When Lee over at freshly pieced started this great quilt along I knew it was for me. Once I started picking out the fabrics for it, I knew it would be the one for them. See, Trina is one of those people that literally brings color into a room. Not in the 'she dresses like a clown' kind of way, but in the 'here comes the sun' kind of way. Rick is great too but more in a wonder-nerd kind of way, and everyone knows how I love a good nerd! So the combinations of bright happy colors mixed with the 'Supernova' pattern was perfect!
So, here goes, pictures of the finished quilt:
|I told you it was colorful.|
And that great, rainbow colored freaky fabric is the borders, backing and binding! I just love the stuff but if you look at it too long, I think it might induce seizures. I had picked that little jewel up off the clearance table at ACC a few years back with NO idea where it was going to live but I just knew I had to have it! I am so happy that this is the forever home it found. I also pray that these two wonderful people have many years of happy dreams while lying under it!
Happy Anniversary! I love you both very much!
