Fairy Tale Wedding Quilt

Heidi brought me this lovely quilt top she had made for her niece.

The niece is living in Switzerland, and she and her husband had a "destination wedding" in Tuscany or Provence (I can't remember exactly which).  They rented a whole resort/castle/winery estate where all their family gathered to celebrate their union.  Wow!  Talk about being blown away!

Vineyards surrounding the Estate

Heidi had made this quilt with photos from the wedding, using a Stonehenge fabric to represent the stone architecture, and fabric with grapes on it representing the surrounding vineyards. 

The photos themselves were gorgeous, the bride and groom so happy!  A wedding to remember!

Because I couldn't quilt over the photos, I had to be careful not to overquilt it.  You can see I chose to "frame" the photos, and place some curly vines in between.

The quilt was completed in time to send to Switzerland in time for their 1st Anniversary!
