Hi, the sun is out and the world is a different place when it is!
Today I thought I would share with you a quilt I made for our eldest son's wedding day. I love the idea of giving a quilt to a newly married couple at the start of their life together, a symbol of their future life together apart from the practical side of having something to cover the bed!
I thought long and hard and finally decided to use the pattern Turning 20FQs - the fabric I bought through one of my favourite shops in US called Sew Shabby Shoppe - they have a beautiful range of fabrics to die for!
I used 4oz 100% polyester so that the quilt could be easily washed and cared for as well as it not being too heavy.
To join the three layers together I tie quilted it with a pale cream mercer's cotton.
On the reverse I embroidered a label to commemorate their special day and give meaning to the quilt when they look at it and remember.
After completing the quilt I did have a few strips of fabric left over which I then put together into this small bassinet quilt which was trimmed with lace.... waste not, want not!!
So, now I am in the process of completing another quilt for our number two son who is getting married in Australia.... I will update you on this quilt in the next few weeks!
