The Wedding Quilt



Chris and Becky are on their way here for the weekend to finalize the last details for the wedding. Since I'm going to give them the quilt to take back with them I can finally post a picture.

My Mom helped by piecing the blocks which I sewed together and then quilted. I think you can see the quilting better in the second picture - it's a pantograph but I think it suits the quilt.

I just realized when I went to post these pictures that I took them before I did the binding. I'll have to take a final picture before I let the kids take the quilt home.

Mary, both quilts (wedding and autumn) are fantastic! Did you use a pattern for the wedding quilt?

The wedding quilt is gorgeous. Is that a Single Irish CHain? Your choice of colors and placement is perfect.

I feel like I am just repeating everybody in saying that this quilt is gorgeous. I like the wonderful fabric selection and the pattern you selected sets them off so nicely. Thepiecing is well executed, and the quilting as well as the fabric selection softens the pattern.

What a beautiful quilt--isn't it amazing how sometimes the simplest quilt patterns done in two colors can be so smashing? You did one even better by making it a bit scrappy, adding more interest. And what a wonderful gift--AND it's done before the wedding! :)

That quilt looks good enough to eat. Reminds me of chocolate covered cherries.. Yum..........

I agree with Passionate Quilter! The simplest pattern can be the most striking! I did one close to this pattern in orange. I'm NOT an orange person, but I LOVE that quilt!
