Wedding day for Jake and Hollie.....

 What a wondeful day it was....

Jake and Hollie....







Even their dogs were included.....

So happy for this young couple, they have been through so much in their lives together so far.....
We wish them all the happiness in their future together.....

I made a Double Wedding Ring Quilt as our gift for them.....

I went with a scrappy look using Purple as the main focus colour....
which is Hollies favourite colour.....

Hollie told me they had it on their bed the first night keeping the old tradition.....

It was a pleasure to make this for them....

Fiona  did her quilting magic for me, it looked wonderful.....


Lots more photos to add later.....
