    Default Wedding Quilt

    After many months of thinking, trying to decide what to do in the way of fabrics, design, etc. for the quilt that I want to make for my son as a wedding gift, this is what I have decided on. I have observed my future daughter-in-law's choices in wedding décor and choices in a home for the two of them. She loves cottage style, she loves shabby chic, vintage, burlap and old mason jars. You will be surprised at what you can learn about someone by looking at their Pinterest, LOL. I went to my LQS and picked out some vintage repro fabric and added it with some scraps from my stash. I am doing a simple Sawtooth Star in all different colors. I am working on the blocks right now. It will take 35 blocks, and I have 2 more to go this afternoon. I picked up a periwinkle blue for the sashing...haven't gotten as far as the back yet. It's not going to be any bed size...just a throw for their sofa, or whatever else they want to do with it. Looking at it on my design wall, I think that it is going to be just what she'll like, or at least I hope so. She is always amazed at all the things that I make, her family doesn't sew or knit or any of that.

    I'm a big fan of stars and a fan of the scrappy / shabby chic and I think your quilt is going to be a beautiful gift. I think this is a winner.
