[My "show and tell" for Kelli's Show and Tell Friday.]

We have a family wedding coming up! Nephew Ben and his fiancee, Natalie.



I made a special heart shaped quilt label for them while I was at work....using the embroidery feature of a new machine.....then it was hand sewn to the back of the quilt.




The queen-sized quilt is called "Arkansas Crossroads" and uses mainly blues and greens, the couple's favorite colors. The 4-patches are from my stash and family scraps...
