working on the wedding quilt...

Had to do a lot of cutting of strips.

Cut them to size

Make some small segments.

Sew them together to make the block segments.

Then sew some sections together to make some more blocks.

So progress has been made; and it's starting to reveal just what it is going to look like.  I  do look at that piles of strips and wonder if I have enough to make two of these quilts!  Makes it a little hard when you aren't going by a "quilt" pattern and only  a "block" pattern.  So, we will see. 

It would be so much easier to make this quilt in only three fabrics.  This working scrappy is making it a much more tedious process, but well worth it. 

Also, thought you might be interested to know that I contacted the company regarding my "moldy" applique glue.

Her first remark to me was "horrors!".  She had never heard of that, but the good thing is that she is sending me a new bottle.  I am going to date that bottle; and while I am using it for my Cherry Trees blocks, I will see if or when  and how long it takes it to do that again.  Thanks to those who suggested I contact them. 

Ok...back to working on the quilt. 


  1. I love the civil war prints for the wedding quilt. Very nice idea. I have a wedding quilt to make also, my youngest is getting married in March!

  2. Yay for progress! It's really going to be a beautiful quilt.

  3. That quilt is beautiful! I do love those pinks and browns.

  4. All of these scrappy fabrics may be more work - but they sure are Gorgeous! Just love how this is turning out!

    So glad that the company is sending you more of your applique' glue. Hopefully it will hold up well this time.

    Happy Quilting!

  5. Gorgeous! You're making good progess - will it finished for the wedding? :-)

  6. Oh boy - pinks and browns - one of my all time favorite combos. Your wedding quilt will be breathtaking and worth the effort of working with multiple fabrics.
    Have you heard the legend that pink and brown quilts were so popular because the Mother wore a lot of brown dresses and her daughter(s) wore pink? Don't know if that is factual, but what a charming history if it is!

  7. So glad you got your glue sorted...that's good costumer service replacing it like that.



My husband built me some shelves for the "stash" closet so that I no longer have to stack all my large Rubbermaids on top of eac...
