"Promise Kept" by Terri Vanden Bosch

Dear Cherrywood--
While at the AQS in Des Moines last fall I purchased 2 FQ Gradations packs (Cranberry to Light and Onyx to Light)--our wedding colors. My plan was to make a journaling quilt for my husband and I to use as a diary when we went to Hawaii for our 25th anniversary.
Well I did get it finished and on the plane it went with us.
I had no design plan when I purchased the fabric--but loved the gradations--so EQ5 to the rescue. Steps to the altar block was a perfect place to use your luscious fabrics!!!!
I also had some yardage left from the making of my bridesmaids dress--so they are in the center Hawaiian blocks and the very top piece of the altar block. The blocks that form the "Lei" around the center blocks was also a steps to the altar block and with a few revisions became the perfect place for the journaling. And some nice blank spaces on the sides to fill up with my longarm quilting.
Since these photos were taken I have added photos from Hawaii, added some crystals to the Lei, and colored the hibiscus border with colored pencils.

Just thought I would let you know how your fabrics helped my make my memory. I named it "Promise Kept" because my DH promised me on our wedding day that for our 25th he would take me to Hawaii!!!

Anyway--thanks again for such great fabrics!!
Terri Vanden Bosch
