I had the pleasure of attending the wedding of someone that is like a daughter to me.
Her mom and I used to call her and my daughter "The Babies".
Now she is all grown up and married!
Mary and Eddie
She was a beautiful bride!
Mary and her Daddy
Her brother did a reading
Saying heir vows
You may kiss the bride!!!
The reception was held at Waldenwoods and the venue was BEAUTIFUL!
Just as beautiful inside too!
Now on to the WIP part of this adventure!
I consented to make a quilt, with a little help from a friend
(you know who you are and since it is a surprise for Mary we are not telling)
I got the HST squares all cut out. Gray with a splash of purple and white.
The pattern is Round and Round by Thimbleblossoms.
There was a LOT of cutting for all the negative space in this one.
It used the Missouri Star way to make the HST and boy was this easy!
Basically you put two squares RST and sew 1/4" around the outer edges.
Make 2 diagonal cuts and end up with 4 HST blocks!
Then I trimmed them down to the correct size for this pattern.
Whew, all trimmed up!
Block one is finished. I think it finishes at about 25"!!! These are giant blocks.
The Sebastian (aka creepy cat) star is my favorite!
I managed to make a second one too. Woo, just 2 more for me to make.
When I made the other wedding quilt from gray and purple and white, it came out so overwhelmingly purple that I didn't want this one to look quite so purple.
I adjusted by using mostly grays with just one purple and one white star in each block.
I will vary the placement of those so that they are not in the same spot for each block too.
I am hoping this tones down the purpleness of the quilt.
I am thinking that I may use purple for a thin border between more of the background gray and possible for the binding, but we will see how that looks once the blocks are finished.
The Moda Bella Zen gray that I used for the background is awesome!!!
It is the perfect gray.
Not too brown or blue, just right.
So there you go, my most recent WIP.
Linking up to Lee's WIP Wednesday post.
