Husband for the Bride

A search on google images found a husband for the Bride. The caption says it's the original groom.
He looks a bit Amish but then again it's probably what all farmers wore at the time. I've seen photos of Abe Linclon in flat hats before he was presedant and wore his Stove Pipe (hat).
One ostrich is almost complete. I will post a photo tomorrow even if I'm not finished.
This is so much fun to share with everyone.
Happy stitching and to all a goodnight.


  1. Terry I love it! Thank you for sharing the google images pg. I think your block will fit perfectly with the others! Every day it's fun to see all the blocks and variety!I hope to join you all soon! Gail

  2. I'm a lurker and possible joinee. :D I just wanted to show a pic of a Baltimore Album I made years ago. I thought the girl in mine was very similar to the one in the CWBQ. If you look, you can see the man to go with her.


  3. I like your groom! The bride will be very pleased. :)

  4. That is a great block...looks like a perfect groom for the lonely bride!!! Very cute!

  5. Well, that certainly gives some food for thought, I don't think I want my groom to look quite like him! I do like the one in Margaret's quilt (above in comments) he seems to fit much better. Looking forward to seeing your Ostrich Terry.

  6. Hey Terry, is this your first block? How cool, good job - Hugs Natima

  7. Thanks for sharing him Terry, this blog is becoming so interesting the further on we get!!! xo

  8. Hi: I think your groom is so creative and will look great in your quilt. All of your blocks are coming out really nice. I am going to start block 1 soon. Janet D.

  9. Fantastic! I think I would like to put my husband in too...
