adrienne and shaun's reversible quilt throw (a wedding gift)
machine-pieced and hand-quilted liberty of london cotton print, linen, and all natural cotton batting
50" x 64 3/8"

the quilt is finally done! i'm patting myself on the back since i can be a procrastinator, but not this time! the wedding is a little over a month away, so i've got plenty of time to excitedly think about my july 4 in vancouver (how unpatriotic of me to leave the states) and a trip to new york for the wedding festivities. but i wouldn't be my restless self if i didn't start delving into my next quilt. i've had some ideas stewing for some time now and i can't wait to get going on something new.

  4. It's absolutely gorgeous. What a thoughtful wedding gift! The quilt I'm working on (that I started over a year ago) is currently on hiatus but I'm determined to finish it eventually!

  5. so beautiful!

    also, don't know if you have covered this elsewhere in your blog, but -- how did you learn how to make such amazing quilts? and, do you make the patterns up as you go along, or is there extensive planning?

    love --

  6. thanks so much for the support everyone! it took awhile, but i eventually finished it. sometimes i wonder if i'm shooting myself in the foot by starting another quilt so promptly after finishing this one, but i just can't resist.

    @katherine, i'm planning on answering your question in a separate post since i've been getting some inquiries, so stay tuned!

  13. Oh my goodness, that bed frame. I was obsessed with the idea of a skinny iron bed frame like yours until I settled for an Ikea one with drawers. You've relit that flame.

    The quilt is gorgeous. I'm sure they'll be over the moon when they receive it.

  14. @audrey - i fully support the iron bedframe! it's a little rickety, but i kind of love old things, so i guess it works :)
