Blogger's Quilt Festival: Andy and Samantha's wedding quilt

This is Andy and Samantha's wedding quilt.

My sister and I made this quilt several years ago to give to my brother and his wife when they got married. One of us found the pattern somewhere (neither of us can remember where), we both went and got the fabric, and I got to work piecing. I used the square in a square ruler because we decided to do it at the last minute and time was of the essence. Using square in a square was fun and made it very easy but resulted in lots of little off-cut triangles that haunted me until I just closed my eyes and threw them in the garbage one day a few months ago.

Once it was all pieced, my sister quilted it.

I actually forgot all about this quilt until a few weeks ago when I saw it on the bed at my brother and sister-in-law's house!

And here it is at the wedding!

Hope you're all enjoying the Festival! Happy Quilting!
