A wedding quilt

My colleagues 20-year-old daughter got married last month ... I'm a little late due to an injured back that prevented me from being able to sit on the floor and sandwich this baby.

I didn't know what their colors are ... heck ... the bride and groom are college students and 20 years old ... they don't have colors yet ;-).

I like scrap quilts ... they always make me smile as I bring out materials that went into other quilts ... baby quilts, wedding quilts, just because quilts ... they bring so much history together!

This one is strips of colored scraps with some solid colors.  But then I've woven it across some wider strips of white and light gray.

I used a meandering quilt pattern and bound it with multiple scrap strips.


It has a simple back with a rainbow of solid color.  The finished size is 48" x 70".

Wrapped and delivered to her dad today ...

Despite the back injury, I did get to run my 2nd half marathon at the Portland Rock and Roll last weekend.  While I was slow, I did manage to shave 90 seconds off of last years time ;-).
Hope my Canadian friends had a great Victoria Day and that my US friends have a great Memorial Day.

All the best

Grad quilt off today

... we got it off in the mail today!

Modified bento box - lavender and aqua
My niece graduates from high school in Kansas next weekend ... she chose the colors ... I got to choose the design.

I kept calling it the Easter Quilt because of the colors ...  

It definitely grew on me as it evolved!

Hope it puts a smile on her face!

All the best
Lisa
