An anniversary quilt in the making

This April marks the 10 Anniversary of my youngest son Cameron and his amazing partner in life Teri-Lynn's wedding.  Of course I don't have the pictures of their special day on this computer so you'll have to be satisfied with this make do snapshot.
There were so many great memories of that perfect day and it was perfect in our eyes.  
They gave us two amazing Grand daughters, Madison who is 7 and Brooke who is 5.
This picture was taken a couple of years ago but I just love it and makes my heart happy whenever I look at it.

Teri wanted the Anniversary quilt done in greens and browns and I knew I wanted to make it in Batiks so here are the fabrics I choose.  
I know Cameron would be happy with anything I make, he's a sentimental kinda guy and I love that in him.  I found the batiks at a quilt shop called Bib n'Tucker here in Victoria and they have the most amazing selection of Batiks (said to have the biggest selection on Vancouver Island).  
I am doing the Lover's Knot Quilt by Eleanor Burns and I know there is love being sewn into that quilt every time I work on it.  Here is a sneak peek of what has been keeping me busy in my sewing room these days. 
 April will be here before I know it so off I go to add some more love.  Enjoy your day and may it be a quilty one.
