My daughter, Melody, was married this summer on August 8. It was such a lovely affair and I still cherish the wonderful feelings from seeing my daughter marry the man of her dreams with the wedding of her dreams. I miss her a lot – as she lives in San Francisco and I live in Orlando. Yes, the name for my blog and quilting business, “Quilted Melodies”, is named in her honor.

I had a lot of fun creating a quilt for her wedding gift. She and Derek live in a typical San Francisco flat – with that vintage air. She has definite design/decorating tastes and I had to choose fabrics that I thought would fit her style – vintage looking, but contemporary. I spent hours searching for fabrics online and in the end chose Charisma by Chez Moi for moda. I am waiting for my daughter to photograph the quilt for me (she’s a professional photographer), but here are a few photos of it in process and when it was presented to them before the wedding:

So… I’m waiting for some photos of it in her SF apartment! It was a fun one to make – especially since it was for their wedding gift!

Have to include some photos of the lovely bride and handsome groom on their wedding day:
