Well, I know I haven’t posted in a while, but I have been sewing! My best friend from college got married this past weekend, and I couldn’t resist sewing up a quilt to celebrate the occasion.
Tiggy and her fiance Jonathan are both in grad school working on doctorate degrees in history, so I wanted the quilt to be the right size for curling up with on the couch with a book. The quilt measures 64×56– not huge, but a nice size for the living room.
I used a simple disappearing nine patch block, which creates a fun patchwork effect from a pretty simple block. Tiggy’s favorite color is green, so I tried to incorporate a good bit of it in the quilt– I used a few green fabrics, green binding, and green thread for the quilting. I included a bunch of other colors to make the quilt bright and modern, even though I used a number of traditional fabrics. The lovely Sarah Russett quilted this for me. I’m still a little scared to quilt a quilt this size on my machine!
The wedding weekend was a lot of fun, and it was great to be a part of Tiggy and Jonathan’s special day.
