way back in april i made a surprise wedding quilt xo

in april i started a super special custom order surprise wedding quilt

mother of the bride requested fabric from friends and family all over the world and she got a great response 
we were inspired by scrapper's delight from one of my very favorite books ~ sunday morning quilts

 and i loved having my new extra large ironing board for this fun project
and a new design wall to play with the placement xo

i love how this wide range of fabric came together beautifully to make a very special quilt ~ i had so much enjoyment creating this

i was able to use the extras for a scrappy binding and i slipped a piece of me in here too

i chose the brides favorite color flannel for back and  pieced it  w a special heart that was tie dyed  for the couple xo

it finished up PERFECT with all over spiral panto

i don't do  a lot of custom work so it was a nice break from machine quilting before i machine quilted it xo

it was a june wedding in israel and i was so happy to receive this fabulous  photo of the bride and groom with their quilt xoxo

orange crush the second

this sweet top was started long ago after falling in love  with the  ms raffle quilt that i made in 2010 [photo below of orange crush the first]   later  my sister helped me finish  piecing the second one  and then i added some corner borders...and then once again it sat waiting [ ahhh, the life of a quilt]
orange crush number one was  done with hour glass blocks and  quilted w spring fling 

and since my summer quilting  schedule is lighter i had some time  this week to  quilt it.... i chose the panto lilac from digitech

and i had this awesome orange polka dot binding picked out long ago...

and this perfect little bit of fabric ~ from aunty cookie  for my pieced chevron flannel back ~ together it all makes the PERFECT quilt xo
in love

the pieced back


definitely another happy finish
this quilt was pieced w  6" pinwheels and a 6" border finishing up at  approximately 65 by 76"  
happy monday xo pam
