Belated Wedding Quilt

February 12, 2014

My sweet friend Alia from college, married her finance Ryan in Portland, in August 2012.  I really wanted to be in attendance at the wedding, but unfortunately I wasn't able to be there to celebrate their big day.  I had grand plans of making a quilt for Alia and Ryan for their wedding, I fervently pieced the quilt top, had it quilted, and then it as time for the binding, which is when I was quickly reminded HOW MUCH I hated hand stitching binding (I know its a horrible excuse, but its the only excuse I have).  

I hate to admit, but the quilt sat quilted, but not binded, in my sewing studio for +/- 14 months after the wedding.  Thankfully I found the time and  motivation to hand stitch the binding before Christmas.


The quilt front is pieced using Jeni Baker's Modern Plus Quilt Tutorial.  Fabrics are from the Bold and Beautiful collection by Michelle D'Amore for Bernatex.

I added leftover strips from the quilt front to the back, which makes the back pop in my opinion.  This beauty of a quilt made its way up to Portland, and is being enjoyed by Alia and Ryan!  :)


I LOVE your comments, and read them all! Thank you! :)
