A wedding quilt

This was down to the wire, finished up at 1am the night before my brother’s wedding in December. A quilt for two very amazing people, the first quilt I’ve ever finished up completely. A quilt that I hope will see my wonderful brother and sister-in-law through many, many years of love, joy and happiness.

I wish I had a better picture, but I barely had a chance to snap this one at the gift opening. You can see Knittykid being very thoughtful about it. I think he was actually quite impressed with his mother.

The pattern is called Sanctuary and it’s in the second issue of Fat Quarterly. (My new favorite online quilting magazine). Quilt Dad is it’s creator, and it was a fairly easy pattern to put together. I’d recommend it highly if you’re a new quilter.

    That’s a fantastic quilt! Your brother and his wife are lucky. I’m a sucker for almost any blue & green color scheme.
