Wedding Present for Mr. & Mrs. May
My friend Mandy got married on Saturday! I really, really wanted to go to her wedding, but we had a few big financial hits over the past couple of months (blew a couple of tires, major dental work–those kinds of fun things!) and we just couldn’t swing the extra cash to fly out. So, like any person burdened with guilt, I way overcompensated and went nuts on her gift. A picnic blanket for two!
The clouds are made from fleece and the birds are connected by a skinny piece of lace trim. The heart is made of a sparkly red vinyl and the name banner is trimmed in gold thread. The rest of the blanket is made with cotton quilting fabric and the batting is natural organic cotton.
In addition to the quilt, I made a carrying tote that included plates and utensil sets for two. I also made roll-up napkins for the utensils to be tucked into.
And, in other news, it looks like the lunch sack tutorial won out over the coasters. I have to make a few design tweaks, but that will be coming up soon!
