At the start of May we drove the 14 hour return trip to attend the wedding of some friends. The weather and the setting were beautiful, if a little chilly, it was Canberra in May! I made a quilt for our wedding gift.
This quilt was made as part of a quilt-along run by Christa.
I started with this jelly roll that I've been saving for over a year.
After lots of cutting and pressing there were lots of these!
This block forms the basis of this quilt (yes, I did unpick that top one and re-sew it!)and once you get to this stage there are lots of different layout options. I went with the hugs and kisses layout as I thought it was significant for a wedding present.
Then it got a lovely border.
I even had the perfect fabric for the back.
I quilted it in a hatch pattern, using the squares in the piecing as my guide.
And it's bound in the scraps from the piecing.
I loved making this quilt!
