Mrs. DillyDally's Happiest Day 2017!

It all started in May when Boyfriend DillyDally called to ask our blessing ... he wished to propose to Sister!  This had to remain a secret ... he wanted to surprise her!  Brother and Girlfriend were an important part of our plans too.
They were traveling here for a wedding the first weekend in October!  The plan was for him to pop the question the next day!  Mr, Brother, Girlfriend and I worked like crazy preparing a surprise Engagement Party all Saturday afternoon and evening!  Nothing bonds a family like working together on an important event ... we make a great team!
Months prior to the big day ... the dillydally winds blew ... an idea to commemorate the day with a keepsake was born! 
Fabrics were chosen ... it was difficult as I had no idea what they would choose!  I am hoping this is something they will use through out their life together ... so I chose brightly colored solids and a metallic rose gold, heart print on white.
Cutting and piecing began ...
... and I fell in love with the results!
Half done!  See the blocks stacked with each plate?
Each block was layered, machine quilted, and bound on three sides!
I created a banner and displayed it at the party!  My intention is to make another with their wedding date ... the hope is that it will become an heirloom and they will use it on their wedding anniversaries! 
They were such good sports and agreed to a dillydally photo shoot ...
... out the road a few days later!
It looks like a wedding may take place Spring of 2019!  Yep ... the DillyDally winds have been blowing!  Lots of undercover work ahead for 007 Agent DillyDally!

Do what you love!  Do dillydally!
Mrs. DillyDally
