A Quilt Revealed

December 16, 2007 at 9:15 am 11 comments

The courthouse steps quilt with the ribbon border has been delivered at last! It was a wedding present for my sister-in-law and brother-in-law who where married in May. The center is a Michael Miller Eiffel Tower print to commemorate their Paris engagement. The steps are their springtime wedding colors – green and purple. Cathy – machine quilter extraordinaire – once again did a fabulous job with a variegated thread in yellow to green and a pattern called “Joust”. And how about that ribbon border, eh? I think it absolutely makes the quilt. In the end, it was well worth the effort. (I had a really tough time getting these pictures, they’re not very good, apologies.)

    Incidentally, I made a small, primitive, quilted wall hanging in purple and green as a wedding gift for my best friend–same wedding colors.

    And I can totally relate to your “quilt math” problem!

    Peg, it is the most wonderful wedding gift! Scott and I sit and wonder over the various fabrics, the fabulous pattern and all the loving, tender care you put into the creation. It’s something we’ll always have to remember our wedding day and you.

    I love this idea. Do you have a pattern with quilt math worked out? Including seam allowances?
