Another wedding quilt...but with a slightly different approach.
I learned very quickly in the making of this quilt that I am not cut out for 80 blocks of the same fabrics and same pattern. I thought this would never end...
This pattern was selected after the mother-of-the-groom and I went on a great shopping trip for fabric. She had never shopped for a quilt before but she knew exactly what colors she was looking for since the bride said she wanted to decorate her bedroom in brown and a deep rich red. Easy to say until you get a in a great shop with lots of selection and then it's not so easy -- but it is such fun.
Ultimately -- she chose beautiful Moda fabrics in those colors (with a little bit of blue) and I used various creams from my stash. And from there, I had to choose a pattern and then make 80 blocks!
No more! The wedding quilt made out of scraps that I'm working on these days is much more satisfying. I had always thought I'd make a two color quilt -- they are so elegant -- I no longer think that's likely to happen!
I hope you're finding time to piece! Jan
