This is the second quit I’ve made. Completed in August 2009 in time for another cousin’s wedding. I designed it myself and based it off the window pattern of one of the buildings I work next to. I based the colors scheme off the bride’s invitations and the color scheme of the wedding which I knew ahead of time. I also hand embroidered their married initials at the center where the brown sashing crosses.
Designing this one definitely put my math skills to the test! There were a few blocks on the front that I cut wrong, so it’s not perfect, but the colors are so bold that it’s not immediately noticeable. I totally improvised the piecing on the back using all the scraps I had left over and I almost hate to say it, but I love the back more than the front!
I bought all the material at the fabric store. It’s the first and only time I will do that. Not only was it expensive, but I had to take several trips to find exactly what I wanted. Fabric is all 100% quilting cotton, except for some of the back pieces that I used from my stash.
The green sashing on the front is 1.5" polyester ribbon.
