wedding blanket

The lovely ladies in my Stitch N Bitch made us this gorgeous blanket for our wedding. Each woman did a different square (or two) using her own pattern. Some squares are knit and some crochet and all are unique and lovely. I will cherish it always and am so grateful for all of the love and care that went into its creation. It reminds me of the quilts of Gee's Bend, which I have always admired for their beauty and tradition. Now I have a little piece of my own history to wrap up in and snuggle with my new husband even when we are very old.
