I’m trying to catch up on blogging my finished projects from 2014 before the year is up. My brother-in-law got married this summer in Toronto and although they requested no gifts I wanted to make a wedding quilt for them.
I choose Aria Land Resonance as the pattern because I wanted something clean and simple to fit into their home. This quilt is 100% shot cottons and they have a lovely drape and feel.
I decided to use wool batting for the first time because it is light and warm and the drape is perfection. It has a little more loft than my usual choice too so the quilting really shines. This one was long-armed by my friend Lisa.
I kept it simple by binding in the background colour. Here you can really see the shimmer of the shot cottons:
In the end I wish I had done it larger, I feel like it isn’t quite big enough for snuggling on the couch.
I hope Sean and Julie love their wedding quilt and enjoy many happy years together.
