Sunset Forest Wedding Quilt

Sunset Forest Wedding Quilt
This is a wedding quilt for a couple getting married in a forest with a sunset – Orange, Golden, Fuschia – color scheme. It sounds so romantic and I love the idea! They are going to work signatures into the squares on the back of the quilt. I mentioned to the bride that the block is a cousin to the traditional Drunkard’s Path, and we both felt that was pretty appropriate to a wedding celebration.

Sunset Forest Wedding Quilt The bride’s favorite color is green, so I put a green backing on the back to honor that. It’s a pretty exact copy of this green tree themed quilt I made last winter – but with a different feel and style, I think.

I can’t believe how rich the tones of the batik fabrics are. I have been getting all my batiks at Quilt Trends here in Columbus, they have great selection, and the best prices I can find anywhere.

Plus, I think with batiks, more than a lot of modern prints, I really want to be able to see them in person. There are some fabrics in here that I think are truly, truly awful fabrics I would NEVER buy on their own -but they really work amazing in the quilt. That kind of stuff you can’t do with on-line fabric shopping.

I did meander quilting and put a creme and orange scrappy binding on this one. I wanted to draw out the orange to keep it from getting too girly with all the fuchsias and purples – a wedding quilt is, after all, for the groom too! (if it’s a man and woman getting married of course).

This quilt is so thin with soy-cotton batting. It’s a hefty queen size though, so it folds up with some weight. My favorite kind of quilt…it’s destined for South Africa.
