Working on a concept for a quilt for a wedding.   The quilt pattern is called Framed Folk.   Instead of making a bunch of blocks I made one row.   I bordered that row and will set it about 2/3 down the top which will be solid white.   I had quite a little bit of help.  He just doesn't understand that his fur leaves a mess on all that white fabric. I have to go over it

A Wedding Quilt . . . . from The Red Headed Mermaid

My niece and nephew were married at the end of July in 2016.
Such a beautiful couple and yes I am biased.

I promised a wedding quilt,
and then life got in the way.

Fast forward to August 2017. 
(I know 13 months late!)

(I apologize for the upcoming photos, not the best lighting!)

I had pulled all the fabrics for this quilt last year.
Their palette is navy blues, greys, and whites.
Not my usual, but I have found I do my best work
when challenged!

Falling in Love from Night Owl Quilting

Amy brought this serene version of the Fabriculous pattern called "Falling in Love Again"  Amy has made this pattern before and had me customize it for a wedding gift.  You can see that version here.   Amy's mom loved it so much she asked Amy to make one for her to give as wedding gift and Amy agreed!  Amy is obviously an awesome daughter!

Amy selected a new to me pantograph called Autumn Breeze for the body of the quilt.  I love the movement that it has.  I'm sure I will be using it often.

Now for the special ...

Wedding Dress Made into Two Quilts for Bridget's Daughters from Mary Manson Quilts

First quilts of 2020!  Bridget wanted her wedding dress made into two identical quilts for her daughters. Her dress had a very full skirt and a train, so there was plenty of fabric. 

Bridget 1
The outer border was quilted in a feather design. The lace that went around the bottom of her skirt was put into the inner border with a spiral quilting design in the open areas. 

Bridget 2
The center was a diamond feather design, with a free form feather wreath in the center.

A "No Apologies" Tutorial for Improv Paper Pieced Log Cabin Triangle Quilts from Gefilte Quilt

When I started this quilt, the idea was to make a rainbow-colored 6-pointed star. I hoped to create a pattern people might use to make a wedding canopy, among other things.  The most relaxing way to do that, I figured, would be to start with log cabin triangles.  
So what you see in the central area of this quilt are a whole lot of log cabin pieced triangles - each center piece is light, and the three "logs" around it are darker. You're also seeing blocks I call "water lilies" - from left to right, the oddball orange, pink and purple ...
