While we were living out of suitcases this summer in a hotel waiting to be able to move into our newly purchased home, I decided to get started on a gift for my brother and sister-in-law's 10th anniversary. We will be traveling to PA this summer for their vow renewal (since all 4 of us were in the original wedding party). Since I never made a quilt for them when they got married and my sister-in-law did ask me a few years ago where her quilt was after I made one for my sister's wedding, I decided it was time to make one for them. This one is called "And Many More" and it's based on Bonnie Hunter's "Florabunda" quilt.
I tried to use fabrics that reminded me of their original wedding colors. She used hydrangeas in the bridal party bouquets and in her bouquet and in the table centerpieces, she also had some bright pink roses.
As you can imagine, I did not travel from the Netherlands with my sewing machine and quilting items in tow. I have to say a huge thank you to our LQS, The Thread Peddler, and owner Bertha for suggesting I borrow her shop machine to keep me busy. Thanks Bertha!
