Toast to the bride. . .

The daughter of a very good friend of ours got married on Saturday - - - we've known her from before she was a twinkle in her daddy's eye!  Rebecca (Becky) was a beautiful bride, the wedding was lovely, and pretty much a perfect day all around! 

I made this French Braid quilt as a gift for Rebecca and her new husband . . . what I didn't know when I made it, was that the wedding colors were light teal blue and black . . . perfect!!! (Glide thread; Quilter's Dream 70/30 batting)

Fall is in the air in Alberta.  The temperature has been very close to freezing the last couple of nights . . . it happens every year!
