Hail, Hail - the quilt is started!

Yup, had hail today! But by the time I got my camera and a new battery the rain was melting it already. But for a bit it was crazy outside! I did get this shot in the grass before it had all melted and the one under the evergreens.

And while the weather was crazy outside I started "THE Wedding Quilt"! My oldest is getting married in October and I figured I had best get started on the quilt! She helped me pick out the fabrics, but has no clue what the design is. And showing you this first set of blocks will not in any way give it away!

Only 6 more months now! OMG! I had better get dress shopping! I keep telling her I'm wearing shorts and a tshirt! At this rate I may really have to!

OMG, Hail! That's surely very strange weather.

Your daughter's weding quilt will be so beautiful.... I love those pink with brown color scheme!

I'm in the same boat. The weddign quilt is not done and I don't have a dress. The wedding is July 11. Yikes!

The other night we started hearing all these clinks and looked out on the balcony to see big hail balls everywhere!! It's was 70 degrees!!

The start looks good on the wedding quilt...good for them!
