This is my beautiful niece and her very handsome fiancé. Aren’t they just beautiful? When she announced they were getting married, I immediately knew that I was going to make a blue and green quilt because she is a swimmer and loves water.
I used a large scale print, stacked it and cut it with a kaliedescope ruler to make these fun spinners throughout. I had to make up my own pattern based on a picture of a quilt designed by the amazing Linda Miller on Flickr. She doesn’t have a book or patterns, so I figured I would make it up. I couldn’t be happier with the result!
I wrapped it up with a fun blue bow and took it to the shower in Albuquerque. Oh the things we do for family, right?
They both LOVED it! (I’m not surprised). A fun part of the quilt was the royal blue knit I used for the backing. It was a piece of fabric from my mother, my niece’s grandma, that I have had it around for years. I figured that now was the perfect time to use it:)
Thank you for dropping by,
