Lyn Duhlig: Benny Loves Melly

Lyn sent us photos of this gorgeous quilt last year but somehow they got missed! Our apologies to Lyn!

"This quilt was made to mark (son) Ben's engagement to Melissa in 2011 (though the quilt was only finished last week - one year after their wedding!). Ben and Mel had been a couple for ten years prior to their engagement - since high school, and the name of the quilt comes from doodles on Mel's high school notebooks.

The patchwork design is by Tula Pink from "Sew Red".  The quilting is my random choices, and all done on a domestic machine.

Next up ... a wedding quilt, and they are expecting my first grandchild in one month, so that's also high on the list."
