Sunny Days - Girl Gang 09/10 and A Contest - Finally a Contest



I didn't like the size of the Girl Gang Quilt in the last post. Drawings don't show up as well as pictures. And I couldn't figure out how to change the size in the last post (I'm still pretty well blog challenged) so I decided to post it again because I really like this quilt. You ought to see it in color - hopefully you will this fall at your local quilt shop.
And...
and...
and..
I finally thought of a contest.
Sandy Gervais has a picture of husband Bruce in her first post on her blog, comments on his shirt and says "Guess when we were married". Go to her blog http://piecesfrommyheart-sgervais.blogspot.com/

and guess in my comments section. (No fair emailing Sandy and asking her like I did.) We'll take guesses in the comments until next Sunday afternoon June 21st. I don't know how to work random org but if we have more than one correct answer, we'll write the names on pieces of paper and have Zoie.org draw one to win a Harmony Jelly Roll or Layer Cake.

  23. I stood up in a wedding in 1972 and the groomsmen all had brown tuxedos. Fun to trip down memory lane and possibly win quilt goodies.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Well he looks a heck of a lot like my dad did in my parents wedding pictures, and I believe they were married in 1974, so I'll go with that! Love this contest! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Well, my parents got married in 1973, and Sandy's husband looks like he could have been a groomsman, so I'll go with that.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I am going to guess 1974. Not sure why, except it's probably close and my daughter was born that year. It's as good a reason as any.

    Love the new Girl Gang...

    I keep going back and forth about it, but I guess I'll stick with 1979. This is fun, though! =-)

    ReplyDelete
  72. It's got to be in the 70's so I'll say, uhm....
    1977.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I'm guessing 1979--the year my husband and I got married. My husband has a similar photo taken on our wedding day, only in the beautiful powder blue version--YIKES!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Pretty! I was born in 1977...so that is my guess!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I am guessing 1981 - mys husband wore a tux just like that (but powder blue)to the Senior Prom!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I say 1974- Elvis era. Betty

    ReplyDelete
  77. 1975 Did HE wear BROWN shoes? My husband would not buy new shoes...his feet would hurt. He would not wear the rental shoes...someone ELSE wore them. So in the photos...I see...BROWN shoes. 34 years later, he is still the one I want to be with...and he could still wear the brown shoes...if I hadn't thrown them out after the wedding!

    ReplyDelete
  78. I vote for 1976. That's the year I made my husband a lime green leisure suit!

    ReplyDelete
  79. What a fun giveaway! I'm going to guess 1979.

    ReplyDelete
  80. I think it was 1974, the year of Nixon's resignation, among many other weird happenings! Can't wait to see who wins...

    ReplyDelete
  81. I'm going to guess 1975, like a lot of other people, it seems! Mainly because I'm sure it's the 70's some time and that's the year I was born.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I think they have been married 35 years, so I guess 1974

    ReplyDelete
  83. I'll have to guess 1976 cause it's the year I was born!

    ReplyDelete
  84. My guess is 1977. The photos look very similar to my high school senior prom pics!

    ReplyDelete
  85. I'm guessing 1972. Brown was big that year.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I am guessing Sandy and Bruce were married in 1972.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I am thinking 1974. That is the year my parents got married and there tuxes look the exact same :)

    ReplyDelete
  88. I think 1972, possibly a little later, but 1972!
    Carmen

    ReplyDelete

  94. I am guessing 1975. That suit sure looks as dorky as the one my husband wore in 1975;) Sunday is our anniversary.

    Debbie

    ReplyDelete
  95. I am thinking 1975 as well as it the year we were married and we went to many weddings and the grooms did look like this!

    ReplyDelete
  96. 1977! That's my guess. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  97. I'm going with 1974 b/c my parents were born in that year and the photo looks like it could have been taken the same day... since there is one of my dad just like it!

    ReplyDelete
  98. Snazzy suit. I'm guessing 1974. We'll just have to wait for the correct answer.

    ReplyDelete
  99. My brother in law got married in a baby blue suit with ruffles just like that in 1979 so that is my guess. The great thing is I was in Europe at the time and missed out on being there and in the pictues. See, sometimes good things happen when looking back 30 years later!
    :-) Hee Hee!

    ReplyDelete
  100. My husband word almost the exact same thing for our wedding and that was in 1977. Those bow ties look so goofy now. Karen Tunnicliffe

    ReplyDelete
  101. We were married in 1973 and my handsome groom looked very much like the picture of Bruce, so I'm guessing 1973.
