A special quilt for two special people

The blog has been quiet, but I have been busy!  The latest project around here has been another wedding quilt, this time for my nephew and his lovely bride-to-be.  I asked around about her favorite colors, and guessed that she might like a more modern look in a quilt.  So here was the result:

IMG_1131This is a very simple quilt, just half square triangles.  I had great fun arranging them on the design wall several different ways, and then we had a vote to decide which one we liked the best.  This particular arrangement is called broken dishes.

IMG_1133IMG_1135No fancy quilting here, just straight lines on the blocks and a little decoration for the border.  I used Kona cotton solids for the top side of this quilt, and it sews like a dream!

I found a really interesting fabric for the quilt backing, and told the recipient that if she got tired of the loud triangles, she could flip it over for a change!

I’m thinking she liked it–once the quilt was unwrapped, it never left her side!
