Beautiful Quilt for a Beautiful Bride
This weekend I was back home in Atlanta for a dear friends wedding. Spring is in full swing down south! Despite a bad wave of storms earlier in the week, Saturday's weather was perfect for an outdoor wedding. As a wedding gift I made the new couple a quilt from Moda's Lily & Will fabric line. The blue's and yellow's in the quilt felt so springy! I struggled a bit to get this quilt together - I was a little scared at the beginning when I needed to cut the fabric into more then 200 pieces but as it pulled together it got much easier. I was literally putting the binding on as I was packing my bags to head back to Atlanta. I pulled it out of the wash and packed it in my bag to head home. I I was almost tempted to keep it for myself, but sanity prevailed and I delivered it safely to the new bride and groom last night at their reception. Here are a few quick pictures I took before packing it up for delivery.
Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. M!! I was so thrilled to be part of your special day.
