This is a quilt I made for my best friend, whose wedding was in June in Chicago. It was a very untraditional wedding- reception in an antique warehouse- and I thought the colors she chose were so unique and pretty I was inspired. The bridesmaids wore cream colored Antrhopologie dresses and the flowers were white and grey and dark dark purple. Anyway, I liked how the quilt turned out and secretly wanted to keep it for myself. Also- it is not easy to find cool grey fabric!! I think I bought it all
The quilt is just Amy Butler's Brick Road design. I recommend it. This was only my second quilt and overall I liked it. Except I only quilted the short sides of each "brick." I made another one of this style and quilted over every line like the pattern says but it shifted the fabric too much and made a ton of wrinkles which really bugged me.
a close up. I added some random pieces of lacey trim and used some shimery fabric too.

Embroidered square in the bottom corner with names and wedding date (and rhinestones). Very girly but that's why I like it.
