My niece is getting married at the end of the month…so I needed to make a quilt.
She is planning an outdoor wedding and likes things more earthy and not flashy…which leads me to thinking simple. So that’s what I designed and have been working on for some time. Actually it’s a present from Kelli and me so in our typical style I designed. Kelli calculated. Kelli cut and started sewing. Kelli actually started the quilt at the time I was sewing Kalissa’s together.
From there it was my turn as Kelli got busy with classes. I’ve been sewing it leader and ender style…and over the weekend-I got the center of the quilt together.
See it’s simple. I have to put a 2 1/2″ muslin border around it yet. Then it will be ready for the machine.
I am trying to decide what to do for quilting. I think I want to stick to the simple look and not do a sweeping floral type quilting motif. I’ve wondered about a square boxy design..I’ve wondered about a stipple and for some reason I’ve been thinking a lot about straight line quilting it…I don’t know…what do you think?
I have a day or two or three to contemplate it because I have to piece a backing together, add the borders and make binding yet.
Although it’s simple, I don’t mind it a bit. After all, simple was the goal.
If Kelli can squeeze in some time, we’ll right this up as free pattern if anyone is interested.
