love in circles

I haven't had much to post about lately because I've been working exclusively on one project: a wedding quilt. This is the first time I've tried to make a quilt for a wedding, and with good reason. It's been an incredible amount of work. However I also deliberately chose a pattern that would stretch my skills. I've learned so much, and next time I think it will be a bit easier.

All that being said, the wedding's in a week and the quilt still isn't done. The top is patched together, now I just need to get to the quilting. Maybe sometime this week, or maybe it will be ready by September, just in time for the cooler weather.

The quilt is Denise Schmidt's (who I have ALWAYS loved) Single Girl quilt - a new take on the traditional Wedding quilt. I love that the rings touch but do not intersect each other. I chose the colors based on items on their registry. The quilt involved cutting and then sewing 36 x 16 + 8 x 16 which, if you're not good at math is 704 pieces. Crazy. But fun.
