Back in wedding season once again and an old friend from uni just got married (congratulations!), for their wedding gift I’ve spent the last few months creating a quilt which I hope they like and get a lot of use from.
I found some wonderful fabric from Moda called Good Fortune that just yelled to me wedding quilt. I created blocks of 2.5cm cubes and then sewed these all together to form a large cot sized quilt/foot warmer quilt for across the bottom of the bed. I then backed it in a vintage bed sheet – flowery blues and greens and bound in a upcycled white and green cotton pillowcase. This was then all quilted together using a grid pattern. Hopefully it gets lots of use and love or years to come!
If you are looking to give a unique gift to someone for their wedding/birthday/anniversary etc then perhaps you would be interested in a quilt? I take commissions and would be very happy to discuss ideas if you have a particular fabric or style in mind, get in touch!
