Love is in the air! This summer marked my 5-year wedding anniversary, and our 10-year “being together” anniversary.
And then I had the pleasure of making this wedding quilt for a friend’s friend. My pleasure! Knowing that the couple was very modern, but still tame in their tastes, we looked to the works of Barbara Perrino for inspiration.
This quilt showcases a variety of colored rectangles, spaced evenly on a neutral sea. It’s in all solids (except for the binding – which is a Moda Crackle, and the backing fabric, which is a subtle beige geometric pattern), which I love and is very “me.”
I did straight line quilting. In a detail maybe no one but me will ever notice, I alternated lines between a cotton thread and a polyester (both in cream). I recently did an entire quilt with polyester quilting threads (yet to be blogged), and I actually loved the shimmery effect of the thread.
The back has a framed red rectangle, placed off-center.
And I cannot wait to show you the quilting label, but I’m going to hold off as I sure wouldn’t want to somehow spoil the surprise.
