My first "secret" finish of 2011!

After a year long engagement.....
I am proud to announce the marriage of my couple!

They tied the knot just in time to move permanetly to a new home.
.
Happy Birthday MOM!

(Hope she likes it!)

For those of you quilters out there.... I double batted this one just to get this effect.
See how the couple comes to life and looks 3D?
If you want to achieve this effect on your quilt,
use a cotton batting on the bottom (next to the backing fabric) and then put a really thin polyester batting on top, and quilt as desired.
The polyester will create the puffy look, and will also stay puffy after lots of washing.
.
I am off for a few days to enjoy some southern sunshine!
Talk to you when I get back,
hope to have lots of pictures to show (especially for you Jo!)
