As you are all painfully aware by now the Ruby quilt I have been making as a wedding gift for my cousin has been a sorry saga - desperate quilting, a hole in the back (discovered after I'd quilted), binding stitched on to the back instead of the front before I realised and I could go on, but I won't bore you. Anyway, for better or worse it's now finished and ready for gifting to the newlyweds next week.
For all the mistakes I made along the way, this quilt is still beautiful and that reminded me a little of my own marriage. So, that's the blessing that I'll be sending with this quilt - that these newlyweds will know that marriage can be beautiful even if it's not always perfect.
In case you are interested the free pattern for the quilt is here.
