Brenda’s Quilt

Published on 01/22/18

This signature quilt was made by Brenda as a wedding gift to her son and new daughter-in-law. (at least I think that is right) The quilt top was pieced by several different family members which Brenda told me needed a little “unsewing” in places. The cream blocks were signed by wedding guests and the setting fabrics were scrappy but meaningful (tennis, military, boats) for the family. New attached image New attached image My biggest challenge for this quilt was coming up with a design that added texture to the signature blocks but did not overwhelm them. About two days before I started quilting Renae Haddadin posted a video of the filler design I used. Thank goodness for You Tube. I love the light green thread on the blocks and you can still read the writing well. New attached image Brenda also gave me a great backing fabric to work with. I used a Hobb’s 80/20 batting and a light green thread throughout. This quilt took a ton of thread. New attached image New attached image
