Last weekend we celebrated another wedding in our family! I’ve pinned this quilt idea many times from the “Sunday Morning Quilts” book by Amanda Jean Nyberg and Cheryl Arkison so I was excited to make it for Alyssa and Keaton. If you own the book, this is the “Sunday Morning” quilt.I stitched their name and date in this one, too! The quilting is simple back and forth lines, my current favorite!Here’s the happy couple after they opened their presents the next day! My cousin, Joellyn, was my partner in crime creating this quilt gift and I was excited she was able to be there for the big reveal!

Last weekend we celebrated my nephew, Jeremy’s marriage to Stacey. I was happy to present them with this wedding quilt I call, “Love’s Woven Rectangles”.Even though I didn’t use a pattern, it’s easy to plan and execute the woven effect of the rectangles.I’ve been having fun stitching names into my quilts in lieu of a label!Jeremy will never forget his anniversary!The quilting is freehand pebbles in the white and back and forth lines in the blocks.Light green thread adds a soft cast to the white fabric that you have to look close to notice. The thread is So Fine! #50, color 505. The batting is Quilters Dream Poly Select.
As they return from their honeymoon today, I hope they love it!

My grand niece, Alexis, will be a sophomore in college so I’m only one year late for this high school graduation quilt! I think she was surprised!Once I knew purple was her favorite color, I started collecting and trading purple fat quarters and then designed a simple puzzle pattern using EQ7.Using five different purple threads, I quilted a simple uneven grid. The different threads don’t show as much as I thought they would!
Comment, follow or contact me! I love hearing from you!

When Sheila’s daughter got married a year ago, quilt blocks were the guest book! And for their first anniversary they received their quilt!Isn’t this a great idea? Many of the blocks have special messages, including their vows.
The backing is a smooth Minkee and that was a learning experience! The quilt is large, therefore the Minkee was pieced, which thankfully, was not an issue. The issue was batting, Sheila initially didn’t want batting because of weight. I started the quilt without batting but the first few stitches looked horrible! They were very puckered and awful. I suggested Quilter’s Dream Poly select because it is light weight and is very user care friendly.
I’m happy to report, success! Everything quilted beautifully and the batting added very little additional weight. The quilting design is a freehand Swirl and Curl and the thread is InvisaFil.
Have you ever started quilting a project and after a few stitches abandon your plans and start over? Sometimes, you just have to do it!
Thanks!! 🙂 Linda
