“A Magical Year”

Blocks 1, 2 and 3

Today is my younger son’s first wedding anniversary.  Mike and Michelle live in Colorado and were married in a meadow near a lovely lodge in the mountains one year ago today.   I called them tonight to say “Happy Anniversary.”   Both seemed to be having a fun time with friends.   But I share with you something that my daughter-in-law said to me tonight … “We have just spent the most magical year of our lives.”   Now you must understand that my son was in a nasty auto accident two years ago, needs back surgery soon, and I believe it must have been a very difficult year.  And yet Michelle could still say they had a magical year.   Mike is so lucky, and as parents we are so lucky to have her in the family.

Here are photos of the blocks I have completed so far on their “wedding quilt.”   Yes, I am slow.   It should have been done at least for this anniversary!   Alas, it was not.

    Yes, I am sure they will appreciate it. It just keeps me aware of what a procrastinator I am. This is something I really need to work on.

    These blocks are amazing! they also look very time consuming and detailed. A slow project for sure but worth it! Today is our wedding anniversary–32 magical years! Marjorie

    No wonder it takes so long to complete this quilt! It is amazing! Can’t wait to see it all. What a work! Rich idea ,these blocks. Are you planning some sashings or alternative blocks of another sort?
    Congratulations. Hope Michael will fully recover this year, from that accident and have a second magical year.

    These are lovely blocks – how are they made? Are they applique? The completed quilt will look wonderful and be something for that lucky couple to treasure. Sue
