Some of you may have seen my previous post, (Pokemon FTW
) from last summer. Well, since then my BFF's wedding has come and gone, and I can FINALLY post pictures of her quilt! In case you aren't familiar with the previous post, my BFF and her husband are the BIGGEST Pokemon fans you could ever meet. Seriously, they are obsessive. So much in fact that they got ME hooked on it. Which was the last thing I needed. Oh well! This was a lot of fun to do with them, and I hope that they really, really enjoy it. I made it JUST big enough for them to share, cuddled together on the couch!
The full quilt! My sister did the actual "quilting" bit for me as well as the binding, and my Mom helped me peice the blocks and edging. I am solely responsible for the block embroidery and painting. It turned out a LOT nicer than my quilt did, I think. My Mom had the idea to fill in the center with patches made from the left over sheet bits (I actually ahve quite a few of these sheets; my sister had a set as a kid and I find them at Goodwill on occasion and can't pass them up!)
The backing is an old Pokemon sheet. I know, I know --sheets make terrible backing for quilts. YOU try finding decent Pokemon fabric!
Drifloon is my favorite!! He turned out so GOOD! (A Bride favorite)
Lickitung is the Groom's favorite.
Mew is the Bride's favorite --she even has a tattoo of him on her ankle.
Skitty was a throw in on the bride's side of the quilt. I needed another pinkish pokemon to even out the color.
Slowpoke, another Groom favorite.
Umbreon, another Groom Fave. I did the Shiny one on my quilt, but decided to do a standard on theirs.
I wouldn't post pictures to Facebook until after they had recieved and open their gift --which the BFF was really annoyed about. I wanted it to be a surprise! But about a week before the wedding, I did post this teaser for them. They knew what was on the quilt already, but hadn't seen any of the blocks. Plus, this is my favorite part of the whole quilt --the hearts just turned out perfectly!
Thanks for looking!
