the wedding quilt
I mentioned a while ago that I was making a quilt for my sister to give her friends. Well, Katie and Peter were married on the 7th, and as far as I know, they're still together. Obviously neither of them is a celebrity.
This was such a great project, right from the get go. I got to spend time with my awesome, gorgeous little sister picking out fabric and consulting on the design. Then I got to make a quilt that I probably wouldn't have made for myself but that I absolutely love.
I absolutely adore the back on this one! I paper pieced their initials and the year - I had to make three 2s since one was backwards. Oops! I think that backwards 2 is on my sewing room floor somewhere, I should take a photo!
I can't remember where, but I also quilted 2 random hearts in there somewhere. Maybe once the honeymoon is over Katie and Peter can find them!
I hope that Katie and Peter love their quilt but also that they use it! There's something so sad about a quilt that just sits on the shelf. This one is definitely for snuggling under.
