10 years!!

10 years ago I married my Prince Charming!  I swear it feels like only yesterday.
We have made so many memories already and I really can't wait to see what the future holds for us.

10 years ago, quilting was already a very important part of my life.
We had a quilt hanging at our wedding reception.  It was a maple leaf lap quilt that I made.  Unfortunately I need to scan the pictures of it, so hopefully I can post them at a later date to show you.

The quilt pictured in the header for my blog was my gift to my husband on our wedding day.  It is a rail fence quilt made of beautiful fall fabrics.  My mom helped me finish it on time!

We also had people sign quilt blocks, in lieu of a guest book.
I love scrap quilts so my mom and I made up some signature blocks out of muslin and scraps.
We asked everyone to write us a message and sign a block that would eventually become part of a quilt.

Everyone had a very special message for us.



Now this quilt sits on a quilt rack in our room.

I take it off the rack every year and we like to read the messages and remember how much fun we had on October 13th, 2001, with all of our closest friends and family.


Happy Anniversary Marty!  Here's to many more years of wedded bliss, and quilting too!!
