This is the sewing project I thought I’d never complete. Not because it was exceptionally difficult, but because I was nervous I wasn’t going to do it well. My mom, thankfully, finally talked me through finishing Matt + Mariah’s wedding quilt.
Remember their amazing wedding in Seattle last summer? Oh, I do. When I wed one day, those two will be in charge of the details. Exquisite party!
My mama created the embroidered tag for the back. The quilt is made of squares signed after the ceremony — a folk art wedding guest book of sorts. The back fabric is a capulana from Kenya, where the groom has done a lot of work.
I so love this couple and am thankful to give them something meaningful to celebrate their union.
