Another wedding quilt – Congratulations Claire and Simon!

 

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!

    • Thanks Jess – I divided the roll in to ‘core’ colours so purple, grey/beige, lilac/dark blue, orange, turquoise/light blue and then green and repeated the on the diagonal. Like most of my quilts the pattern kind of evolved as I was doing it! 🙂 Look forward to seeing pictures of your finished quilt!

I love getting comments!...
