The witches are flying

The witchy ladies are flying on out of here--finally! This quilt isn't huge but sure seemed to stretch on for a long time due to many interruptions. Of course, the interruptions were for some very fun and important things, like weekends away and visits from kids and wedding showers! So here is the quilt:

And here is a glimpse at the shower:
Brita and Molly, who hosted the shower and is the Maid of Honor
Grandma Sally, Aunt Ruth and Grandma Ruth
It was nice enough to enjoy the backyard, which was gorgeous with all the flowers planted there. Even though it was a very hot and muggy weekend, we needed the outdoor space to have all the guests seated for brunch. This was a combined group of high school friends, college friends and family from all over, all together in one smashing party for Brita. I was amazed at all the beautiful and generous gifts that were shared, what a testament to the love and support for Ben and Brita as they build their life together. Thank you so much to Molly, Katie, Barb and all the others who helped out, I really appreciate all the time and effort. The shower was followed by a night out in Minneapolis for the bride and 6 bridesmaids, of which no pictures will be shared! I did accompany them for awhile to serve as photographer and cheerleader, but I have no idea of what happened after I excused myself about 6:00 and that's the way it should be! They are a fantastic group of friends and truly wonderful people, all living positive and productive lives. Can it get any better than that??!! Oh wait, yes, I get to see them all again in October!

I love your witchy ladies quilt. Great design, fabric & color. Love it. Did you create the pattern? I'm not familiar with it. Very cute.

Thanks for sharing.

Great photos of the shower, Pam. Looks like it was a lot of fun. It is almost humbling, isn't it, to see someone you love so much receive so much love from other people.

Nice witches, too!

Oops! I forgot to credit the designer and quiltmaker! I did include that in another recent post, but it bears repeating: the quilt is a design from Buggy Barn in their book "Frightfully Crazy" and it was sewn by Nancy H. for an upcoming class at Bear Patch Quilting Co. Glad you like it, please check out the Buggy Barn designs for a lot more whimisical ideas.
