Wedding Quilts: April 22

Good Morning.  We love the tradition of giving a quilt as a gift to a new couple.  While the Double Wedding Ring has been the traditional favorite pattern there are many others that are popular including motifs based on Log Cabin, on houses or cabins, on trees representing the family.  Small wall hangings have often used, too, in barn or country receptions.  We see no reason why contemporary wall-hangings couldn't be used to decorate a hall or serve as outdoor banners in an urban wedding.

But, however the use, a quilt as a wedding gift is one of art, of time spent thinking about the couple and their families as the fabric is cut and stitched and quilted, of good wishes.

Here are some that have recently been posted by our readers Caryn, Susan, Tori and Anita.  Our thanks go to them for sharing their work and to everyone else.  We'll feature more soon....  Wedding season is coming. 

from: Caryn Lee: "This was for my brother in laws wedding. The pattern is called Flowers in the Cabin by Pam Bono Designs. I love log cabin quilts!"

We love Caryn's quilt...and this pattern!   Black, grey and white aren't typical colors for wedding quilts, it has a very modern, elegant and crisp feel to it.

from: Susan Hopper: "Wedding quilt for my nephew & his wife. The border is pieced half square triangles."

from: Tori Mickelson Babbitt: "I made this for my son and his new wife when they got married.... They might get it now for Easter ;) haha"

from: Anita Balgenorth: "Tree of Life quilt made for our daughter and her husband in celebration of their marriage last May. Their initials are on the heart on the trunk."
