Three weeks from today our baby sister is getting married!
We've had the privilege of seeing her grow up from baby to 21 years old. Suzanne and I have had some influence in her life. We know that for a fact because she quilts. :-) She's even made a big king size quilt for their new bed.
I didn't think I would make them a quilt for their wedding. They do have several quilts already. But when I suggested that I not make one, Karen made this really pouty face and told me that she still wanted one from me. I didn't need too much encouragement after that!
I had so much fun making this quilt. I had wanted to make Drunkard's Path Blocks for some time and had pinned a bunch of quilts in this style. I decided on a colour scheme similar to their wedding colours with the addition of gray and yellow.
I love the quilt and it turned out close to what I had envisioned (sometimes that doesn't happen.)
For the back I used up some pieces of fabric I've had in my stash. I especially love the keys fabric but I've had it on my shelf for about 4 years and haven't used it yet, so it was time to use it!
I can't wait to visit them in their little basement suite and drink tea and snuggle under this quilt! (Maybe the snuggling won't happen until winter.)
I do believe they love the quilt too!
|I just noticed something about this photo - I see 4 quilted/sewn things in this little piece of my house! I love it!|
That's what I've been working on the last little bit. It was a labour of love!
Next on my sewing list - sashes for my girl's dresses and a few more table runners for the wedding.
