Wedding Quilt

Wow, it’s been over a year since my last post. Time sure flies, doesn’t it? I have kept up crafting, just neglected blogging. A lot happened in the last year: we bought a house that lengthened my commute to work (although totally worth it because I LOVE our house), I went back to school part-time, we adopted a second dog. Somewhere along the line, we turned into adults…

Being true to myself, I’ve had a couple of UFOs to deal with (UFO = Unfinished Fabric Object). Here’s an update on our wedding quilt! hopefully, I’ll finish it by our, hum, 5th wedding anniversary.

At the wedding, guests could sign a book and/or sign quilt blocks

The blue and green fabrics come from Bali! We picked them out in 2014 when we spent a week there after our Everest Base Camp climb. He picked the green and I picked the blue (obviously). I liked the idea of making a quilt that reminded us of one of our greatest adventure trips together, and to have our loved ones sign it as well. I got this idea from reading one of the Elm Creek Quilt novels, of course!

Two of my favourite blocks were made by two of these little darlings

And then there is this guy, who wrote on the back side of the block. Not sure yet if I’ll just leave it as is for authenticity or undo the block to flip the middle square, but I smile every time I see it.

I decided to embroider over the writing to make sure it doesn’t fade too quickly. So I’ve made some headway in the project and I have something to work on when I sit on the couch and watch TV!dsc_0268

Slowly but surely this quilt will be completed. And then we can actually use it and be reminded daily of what an awesome wedding celebration it was!
