I finally have the wedding quilt done and delivered.
She’s a big girl at 95″ x 95″!
I was going for a vintage farmhouse kind of look. I wanted it simple but nice. I think this fits the bill.
I don’t know if this is me or… everyone who gives a quilt. Do you wonder if it’s going to match their colors? Do you wonder if they’d prefer a comforter from the store? Some people are like that…I know I don’t just imagine that.
So I tried to mimic it to be more in line with something you might buy in a store. I did straight line quilting. I used neutral colors. It’s scrappy but not too scrappy.
This was fun to make and not hard. Lots of strip piecing happened.
I’ll be making the quilt again…only in Halloween fabric. Then it will be sent off to American Patchwork and Quilting for fall publication.
Here is the back of the quilt…you can see the shadow of the front shining through.
As you all know, I’m really trying to stay home and not go out much. That left me struggling to come up with backing fabric. Of course, I know I could order some but I’m also trying to use what I can from the stash. So this what I came up with.
Being it’s a gift I wanted it to look planned and symmetrical. I had a leftover block, I added fabric to all sides of it to make it big enough to work with the cream fabric.
The cream fabric at the top was a thrift store find…I’m not sure about the bottom piece. I think that might have been too.
Overall, I’m pleased with it. The binding ended up being the same muslin I used in the quilt. I debated about using peinand ended up liking the muslin best.
I’m so happy to have this one finished!!
Kelli ended up delivering the quilt…I hope they like it!!
