This week I made this quilt for my dear friend Regina. Her son was married last June. At the wedding she asked people to write marriage advice on cards she put on each table. Then she printed the advice onto fabric.
A few weeks ago she sent me the printed fabric as well as a bunch of other fabrics with a note to put it together somehow.
When Regina gave me carte blanche to do what I wanted, one design came to mind.
I knew it would be perfect to frame the advice squares.
I’ve seen several of them that I like, this one and this one and this one; I’ve been wanting to make one for years. This was my chance.
With the fabric Regina sent me I made a light-dark, light-dark pattern.
I was able to quilt it and bind it and send it off in plenty of time before the newlywed’s first anniversary.
What do you think?
Watch for the pattern, I should have it up soon.
This is beautiful–the sentiment, the quotes, and the quilt.
Beautiful quilt. Love the way you designed it.
