LOVE anniversary


I wanted to make something for our 10th anniversary. As some of you brought up question about that circle in my header I dust off my old plans and started another Love project. I really like this design (not mine) and I have plans for quilt as well. This is about to become wall hanging. You can read about the inspiration and previous projects here.


I made full size templates to help me visualize the whole thing and make sure I have right size. I added seam allowance and cut out the shapes.


First I pieced the triangle and added square, plus fairly simple rectangles to the other side. I wanted round circle so no piecing but I used hand appliqué technique.


Here it is with the first Love project - mug rug. Current size 31x43". I just need to figure out how to quilt it. Probably it will become another practice piece for my FMQ adventure. 

The time really does fly. So far we did not celebrate our anniversary. Honestly I wouldn't remember the date if we didn't have it written inside the rings. It is not a big deal really but this time around we went out and had dinner and spent some time without our lovely girls. My husband had a surprise gift for me. Dotty box filled with some fabric love. Yay! I'll show you what's inside on Sunday Stash ;-)


Linking up with TGIFF and Crazy mom quilts.

  13. I never know what to say when people ask how long my husband and I have been married. We've been together for 9 years but only married for four of them. Saying "four years" seems like I'm ignoring the five years beforehand!! We don't pay attention to the dates either. Last year, it was a few days past our anniversary when I remembered LOL. Bigger things to worry/think about though :)

  19. Happy anniversary, Vera and hubby! I agree - your hubby is a keeper - the fabric collection is faaabulous, and a most impressive idea for him to come up with :) Hubby and I will be celebrating #29 in a few weeks, lol - we'll go out for dinner, but that's the extent of any official celebrating :D

  20. Happy Anniversary! We just had our 18th, on the 21st. I won't complain about getting flowers but fabric would have been an amazing surprise. I also agree that your husband is a definite keeper.
