The Royal Quilt, Your Highness...


This is the more accurate photo as far as color is concerned. You can't see it here because I had lousy light, but the words "dream," "wish," "fairy godmother," and "love" are also embroidered.


The colors are garish here but you can see the embroidery placement better.


Extreme closeup of a corner, so you can see a design (frog prince) and one of the words I chose to embroider.


Another closeup to show the little castle embroidery and some "happily ever after..."

Nice Blog. Our family hosted some old KY ladies (yes, ladies, not women or chicks...lol) once and, as a thank you, they made my sister and I each our own quilt done all by hand. Your blog reminded me that I should go and get mine from my parents' house.

That is one of the nicest princess-y things I've seen. the colors are nice and muted. I'm not in to letting my girls have all the crazy princess junk (their room is done in muted primary colors - Eddie Bauer-ish, if you will) but that's actually a very cute quilt that I would allow in my house :). Well done! And you're getting paid for it!

Wow, that is somethin' else! I'm in awe of your sewing machine's bells and whistles. And your ability to manipulate it. It's fabulous.
