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 with a lint roller before I send it to my friend in California to quilt it.
Usually I make a hand embroidered label for the back.
This time I wanted to try something different.
I found a paper pieced alphabet I liked and went from there. I did the couple's first initials, the wedding date and an acronym their family uses a lot.
I can't show that as I don't want to give it ALL away, LOL.
I had fun paper piecing the letters using some text fabrics in specific ways.
Just a couple of examples (b mine).
I ended up with one block left over so I made a pillow cover with that.
I even did a hidden zipper on the back and quilted the front myself!
All it needs is an insert and viola, a shower gift!
I had cut too many of the blocks trying to decide which ones I wanted to use but not enough to make anything else from so I cut a few more and put them together as a baby quilt.
I really love how this pattern came together!
The top is now all put together but I have not taken a photo of it yet.
I may not until I get it quilted.
Aren't these blocks the bomb?
I will make this pattern again.
It is by Modernly Morgan and you can buy a copy here if you want to make one too.
It goes together so quickly!
