Wedding Quilt

Cheryl brought me this lovely quilt top she made for a wedding gift.  She just wanted me to stitch in the ditch, which was a great choice, keeping it very simple and not-too-feminine.  For her second-only quilt, Cheryl did a great job of keeping things square!

The wedding couple picked out the colours, I believe the plum colour represented the bridesmaids dresses, the black for the men's tuxedos and the white of course, for the bride's dress.

I loved the way she used a photo of the couple in the center of the quilt.  There were two lovely, machine-embroidered filler pieces on either side of it, as well.

Surrounding the photo were blocks of many well-wishes provided by the wedding guests.

What an amazing memento of a very special day!
