OMG Its A Wedding Quilt

I haven't blogged about his really, but I have been beavering away at a wedding quilt for my son and his partner. Haven't blogged because it is very much a work in progress and very much still a state of mind rather than a project. But its all starting to come together now and the deadline is coming together now too. If I blog about it and link into the One Main Goal (OMG) with Red Letter Quilts and Heidi  it will help me. Won't it?


The plan is there is no plan.

No, seriously. The plan is an ombre quilt in shades of blue and green. The two favourite colours of the marital couple. The half square triangles will all sort of work together like the bride and groom will. And blend in together yet still keep their own personality, I mean colour. You know what I mean. Don't you? It works in my head.

The fabric is all kona from Fluffy Sheep Quilting and The Village Haberdashery. I have recorded each individual block under the hashtag #coulterweddingquilt on ig to keep a sort of diary. I started recording the shades used, but that lasted about two days. I have however recorded the block names and tried to find appropriate block names. From memory and morning star to broken dishes and contrary wife! (ME, not the younger new Mrs C).

So, my One Main Goal for May is to have the blocks all ready to sew together. I have sewn about 20 blocks and  have another 5 in progress. About half way through hopefully. No idea how they will fit together. That can be June's One Main Goal.

  3. THis is really beautiful Helen. Great shades of Kona. I think I would last about 2 days with the keeping track of shades as well.....record keeping is very tedious.
