My crafty friends and I have a tradition of making a quilt for each other's weddings. It started with Sarah and this time we did it when Jes got married.
I asked for Arkansas Crossroad blocks in jewel tones with white X's. Cassie, Kim and Sarah all pitched in blocks. I made some blocks and finished the quilt. here is a progress shot of the blocks. I was sewing in the early morning before the boys wake up.
Here is the layout. It is so bright and cheery with the contrasting white. I used a red minky fabric for the back to amp up the cuddle factor.
Sadly I don't have a picture of the finished product and I can't recall how I quilted it. We started in September 2015 and I finished it in time to give it to her for our semi-annual truffle shuffle in December.
Here is a picture of our truffle making efforts. We usually make between 600-700 chocolate truffles with up to 12 different combinations of chocolate, fillings (pretty heavy handed with the booze here) and coatings. I'm hoping we can arrange another shuffle this winter.
