Keepsake Envelope


My daughter announced her engagement in April and will be married in early September of this year. Our white challenge naturally called for a white whole cloth from a machine quilter so with the wedding talk I felt compelled to make something for her. A keepsake envelope will be a special place for the treasures of their special day.

  2. I think you are very clever to have made this timely and sentimental gift for the challenge. I suspect you had a lot of fun with all the machine quilting, too. Did you use your domestic sewing machine? A triumph!
