favorite things | wedding quilt

When we got married, I wanted to add a lot of homemade touches to our wedding. I crocheted a heart for everyone at the wedding.  I made placecards in the shape of pennants with paper flowers my mother painstakingly quilled.  I bought a ridiculous amount of Heather Bailey fabric which my friends helped me sew into pennants and napkins. 

After the wedding (which was all I could have hoped for and more), we were left with over 100 napkins and yards of leftover fabric.  A novice seamstress at best, I had no idea what to do with the fabric.  My best friend asked for it and I gave it to her.  On our first wedding anniversary, she delivered this amazing wedding quilt, created by my talented friend Missy at blustitch.

The pictures do not do it justice.  The colors are so vibrant and the stitching is impeccable.  It is one of the most beautiful things I have ever owned - and all the more special knowing it came from a part of the most important day of my life. 


  1. It was one of my favorites last year! I'm glad I could create something that would remind you of that one, very special day, for many happy years to come! <3

  2. Missy is amazing!! I have a beautiful baby quilt w/ all my favorite hues of blue that she made my daughter 9 years ago. I was marveling at it just the other day! :) Sounds like you had a lovely wedding and what a gorgeous quilt! Missy Rocks! :)
