The Heart Wedding Quilt

"Quilts are not just for remembering, but for reliving their making." Not sure who said it but it certainly speaks to many of our vintage quilts. I have owned this red/green quilt for years and always wanted to recreate it in some form. A wedding seemed like the perfect solution. It is a variation of an Irish Chain but I re directed the hearts and replaced many squares with print navy fabric. It will be on it's way to Portland, Oregon soon. 

Yes, they have a dog so I found the perfect doggie paw print for the backing. The white strips were signed and collected at the wedding and at a shower for the couple.

I love that idea and a beautiful quilt for the occasion.
I would have loved to do that for my DIL and son, they were married in Malaysia with her family and it would have been nice to have them sign fabric so I could make a quilt for her.
