The Wedding Quilt…

With the rainy weather finally here, I can be found huddled up in my sewing room… attacking ‘The Wedding Signature Quilt’!  TbMgW-0419e-X2 

You may remembered that my daughter got married this summer.

Instead of signing a guest book, we asked the guests to sign scraps of fabric which would be added to the quilt blocks…

Maggie and Toby picked Kate Spain’s new line of fabric called “Horizon”…gorgeous fabric..It had all of the wedding colours in it plus a dash of the mountain views…greens, blues.  This fabric was so ‘hot off the racks’ that it wasn’t even out yet…so we pre-ordered it and it arrived last month…and let me tell you it was PERFECT!

So let me burst that wedding bubble and take you to mama sewing in the sweat shop…:o) where I formed the blocks…Maggie chose a simple pattern…

…and we let the fabric sing!  I absolute LOVE the fabrics…they are light and airy and happy!  (Could there be a modern quilter hiding in my soul??)

I have more rows to go but it is taking shape…and I think the newly weds are going to love it!!

So back into the sweat shop for ME!  And bring back that wedding bubble…

  5. I love how you had them sign the fabric and the quilt you making. That is going to be such special moment for them to enjoy and pass down to their children.
