I'm going to a friend's wedding next weekend - what they mostly want is contributions to their honeymoon fund, but I thought it might be nice to make them a lil quilted something, so I used freezer-paper templates of their first initials to create a small graffiti "art" quilt for them:



I found the trickiest thing was deciding what designs to quilt - I haven't had much practice with zen doodles.  Clearly I should do more random scribbling!



(I'm not home right now, but I'll add a label when I get back.)

Beautiful! Those light, bright colours really pop on the darker blue.

Beautiful! This is so creative and just down right cool Cool. They will love it and cherish it forever- long after the honeymoon is over, I'll bet.

Thank you!  <3 I think I saw the idea in a magazine, and it was pleasingly quick to do.  The magazine used black fabric, but I didn't have any decided blue would be a bit softer.  Wink  I figured it'd be more original than a card from a shop, anyway.  Smiley
