So, this is the quilt.
The wedding quilt for Ray and her husband. To commemorate their spectacular day. To accompany their maiden voyage into the weird and wonderful world of marriage.
I invited Rays hens to contribute fabric that reminded them of Ray. (The gold leather is my favourite contribution!) I chose some beautiful vintage floral fabrics and I then stitched the fabric from the hens together with other fabrics from the wedding; the fabric menu, a few of the handmade fabric napkins, and some pretty floral handkerchiefs that decorated the reception venue. I then backed it with a large piece of vintage floral fabric (Ray really likes florals!)
Here it is laid out on my bed, before I gave it to her. Above our bed is the bunting from my wedding!
Dear Hens, thank you for the fabric squares you sent, and apologies it took me a little longer than expected to sew them together (what's 2 months between friends?!) To the hens who would still like to contribute; you still can! Bring along a pre- hemmed square next time you go round to Ray's and you can stitch it on top of the quilt. It will be the quilt that just keep giving!
At some point Ray or I must tell you about Rays epic hen do too...
Happy Wednesday to you!
