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:
This 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.
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!
This was an enjoyable quilt to make, and I managed to finish in time for the wedding shower. Since I had extra backing fabric, and big quilts are hard to wrap, I made a cloth bag to put it in. It closely resembles a pillowcase, so I think it might useful that way also.
I’m thinking she liked it–once the quilt was unwrapped, it never left her side!
