The Wedding Quilt

Here is a picture of the quilt I made for Amy and Gavin for their wedding. They wanted a quilt to use on the lounge rather than just something decorative (which is what I tend to make!) and in blues and browns. I wasn't sure if they would like it but they did. I wanted to add some red but restrained myself. I used a pattern from a book called "Successful Scrap Quilts" by Margaret Rolfe and Judy Turner. Has some great scrap quilts in it using rectangles.
I was able to embroider on the label. Here it is. I used one of the blocks from Lynette Anderson's BOM My Home or yours, that I am working on. I change the bride's dress so it looked more like Amy's and took the top hat off the groom.
After hunting everywhere unsuccessfully for the perfect card, I ended up stitching one.

What a clever Mum you are - the quilt and card are something that Amy and Gavin will treasure always.

The quilt is beautiful but I love the label and the card - how special are they!! Love all the photos, the color of the bouquets, and you looked beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

Mum told me about your blog. So this is where you have been hiding. Did you not use red in the quilt because you had issues mixing your reds, lol? Please pass on my congratulations to Amy and Gavin.
