Posts Tagged ‘wedding quilt’

On Saturday, my nephew, Jake is getting married to Lessa. Of course, Auntie Cindy had to make a quilt for the happy couple.

I pieced the top late last Spring. Below is a photo of it un-quilted. ┬áThis is a large scrap quilt, about 100 x 100 inches. I took the photo at my daughter’s house and there is a little bit of a breeze. My Grandson Nathan (at the right) and Granddaughter Mackenzie are holding the bottom of the quilt while I am taking the photos.

I quilted curved feathers in the light parts of the block and wavy lines in the darker parts of the block. In the light sections I used Signature 100% cotton thread, Sand Dollar, and in the darker sections I used the same Signature thread in Fawn.

Here is the completed quilt – Enlarge the photo to see all the detail of the quilting. The texture is amazing! The quilt is so large that I couldn’t get it all in the photo.

I hope you can see some of the detail in this photo. Again, enlarge the photo to see the quilting detail.

Here is the back of the quilt. The backing fabric is actually a darker burgundy color. The sun (yes, there is sun in Seattle in October!) makes the fabric look lighter. The texture is amazing!

One more photo of the back. This is the border area so you can see the feather quilting.

The wedding is on Saturday and today is Wednesday. I have to pack this quilt up and send it to Illinois, like right NOW!! I do my best work on a deadline!

I won’t be able to be at the wedding, but I am sending all my love and ┬ábest wishes to the bride and groom!
