A Quilt for a Wedding

A Wedding Blessing

I finished a quilt on Friday and gifted it to my oldest friend (we have been friends since we were 4) in celebration of her wedding yesterday.

It is a 4-patch strip quilt. I quilted the 4-patch strips in a meandering stitch to represent the twisting and turning of life, and the solid strips were quilted in "bricks" that fit together and create a "foundation" in between the colored bits and pieces of the 4-patches.

The back is simply off-white with a strip of the same maroon fabric from the front with strips of 2 1/2" squares.

I included a blessing for their marriage.

On to the next UFO to be finished.
