Framed Folk

 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!
