One of our daughters got married last fall. She chose fall colors for her wedding and her favorite color is purple. A wedding quilt was in order but what to make, what to make. How about a quilt with more than 2,600 pieces? Yes, that sounds about right 😉 I picked Bonnie Hunter’s Scrap Crystals.
Scrap Crystals is in Bonnie’s book More Adventures with Leaders and Enders. But those colors just won’t do…….so I brought out my fall colored scraps and got to sewing. Oh, I’m liking this.
I keep sewing those half square triangles and squares and soon I had blocks and then sashing! My helper kept me on track (yeah, that’s what we’ll call it) and soon I was assembling the top.
The colors above aren’t true, well not for the center sashing strip. It’s a nice eggplant purple like the picture below of the border. I quilted it with variegated thread and I was quite pleased with the results.
I had another helper when it came to sewing down the binding……oh, and I found the perfect backing fabric. I know this because EVERYBODY comments on the wonderful backing fabric. Hey, all the work is on the front, pay attention, people!!
I was thrilled with the completed top and I think the bride and groom were as well.
Happy Quilting, Cherie
