My mother had to make a quilt for our wedding, of course. She makes quilts for all kinds of occasions… and the marriage of her only child? Oh yeah. Time to pull out all the stops. I requested the fabric collection and approved the pattern–and she took it from there.
My oh my did she ever take it. This wedding ring quilt took her three months to piece, and is quilted with the densest quilting she has ever done. It pretty much defies comparison.
The fabric collection is Patisserie by Fig Tree Quilts, one of my very favorite designers.
It is a generous queen size, of course, to go on our generous queen bed. It’s finished in scallops to follow the rings.

And the pieced front, also showing off the quilting.
Feathers inside the lozenges
And feathers inside the squares.
Photographs of the actual wedding are in the mail, we hear, so I should be able to share those with you soon. I warn you though, the ceremony was only six minutes long…
