The beginning of October saw my family attending the wedding of Bindi & Anthony.
I have been in discussions with the bride & groom in the months leading up to the wedding to find out if they wanted a quilt & if so, what should it look like.
After many text messages & phone calls the bride finally decided & gave me 2 weeks to get it made. AAARRRGGGHHH!!!
This was the inspiration quilt from http://waterpenny.net/how-to-make-a-wedding-signature-quilt/
After much deliberation they decided the quilt could be teal, grey, light coffee brown.
I got to work, cutting, piecing & appliqueing
A finished monogram
Now onto the frame.
An all over stipple
It was at this point, that I had a panic attack thinking I had loaded it onto the machine incorrectly as I had forgotten the quilt had a matching backing. Momentary panic attack. It is very pretty when the front & back match so well.
Ahh relief. The last quilting stitch.
The completed quilt
The label & bow ready for delivery.
(sorry about upside down)
And now for the gift opening. I love it when the bloke notices the small details - the fabric right beside the label says "PS I love you".
I think they like it.
Now some quilt stats.
This quilt was made ENTIRELY from my fabric/ wadding stash.
84" square for a queen bed
It took approx 15m fabric.
It took somewhere between 20-25 hours to sew.
I work well under pressure, so the 2 weeks before the wedding worked in my favour.
