Wedding Quilt Mania

Erik and I had another wedding to go to this weekend. Yet another of my dental school buddies tied the knot, this time in Texarkana. You figure out where that is.

This time I dove into my stash and chose fabrics based on the only color scheme I could come up wtih for this couple: maroon and green. Jon went to Texas A&M and Kim to Baylor. There you have it.

One fabric was from the curtains we found in our Round Rock house when we moved in and subsquently replaced. Two fabrics are left over from a welcome mat I made in college that said "HOWDY" and was taken (contrary to the Aggie code of honor) right off the front porch! The homespun maroon was left over from my Aggie t-shirt quilt and the greens from Nanna's table runner. I did buy the bleached muslin for the borders and the backing.

Sorry, this pic is a bit windy and shadowy....

This one a bit dark...

(I've discovered I don't allow my husband many opportunities to use our little camera. He needs some practice...)

And this one is just right ; )

It's lap sized and stippled and was bound on the 2.5 hr drive to the church plus the extra 45 mins sitting in the parking lot because we were early. Whew, that was close!

It was a beautiful wedding and a fun reception! I hope they love their quilt and spend many hours on the couch in front of the tv watching A&M vs. Baylor games with it ; )

It's really cute! The green and maroon go together well. Not over girly or overly masculine, I'm sure they'll both love it and it will be a treasured family heirloom!
