It has been a summer of weddings in our family. This was the second of three. Joe is my husband's nephew. Joe's mother told me that their colors were "French Blue, Cream and Merlot" I had the background fabric already, and then made a run to the store to find the other two. I'd started a few blocks in another design, and really wasn't pleased with the outcome. Then I saw this pattern in a quilt magazine, and I knew that this was "their quilt" I really had a good time quilting this with oodles of feathers, continuous curves, and some tight meandering to really make the feathers stand out. The batting is wool so very light, but a much higher loft than the cotton that I also love to use.
Wishing them both many years of happiness together.
