Our daughter Kate's been married for almost 8 years...I can't believe it's been that long! This is the quilt I made a few years ago from her reception decorations... We had silk "placemats" on the center of each table. A larger magenta or orange rectangle, then a green square set on point on that...topped with a grouping of bead wrapped glasses filled with gerber daisies in bright magenta and orange, along with some mini lime green mums. The colors really popped against the white tablecloths, and the outdoor setting worked so well for the summer reception.
I "visited" the quilt while we were in NYC- I wanted to take it out and do a photo shoot with it on the subway platform. But we just didn't fit it in!! There is SO MUCH to do in NYC!!!!
Here is the back of her quilt... The organic line quilting was done by Claudia, another one of my long-arming friends!
