The Bride Has Arrived!

My goodness - at long last I have a Bride! It seems to have taken me ages to make this block.

There is a bit of a blank there and I'm thinking maybe when I'm quilting, a couple of quilted leaves will fill it - I feel sure it will - forever critical of my own work, LOL!

I am really enjoying doing this applique and I so appreciate the making of a quilt in this manner. Other quilters and their works certainly inpire me.

Happy day all!
Hugs - Lurline♥
