making : a quilt for beautiful friends

Some friends got married few weekends ago, and we thought a quilt was what we wanted to give them.  So it started the fun.

Picking the fabrics.  I do love this process.  Thinking of something that reminded us of them and their family, something bright and fun for the cooler, more gray days in the colder months.

But I also liked having the gray in between, to divide it and unite it all.  To give it a little rest  in between the brightness.  And also, a little bit of Portland’s winter days.

And of course, our latest new addition to our pantry.  The grape jelly that matches the orange ribbon, as Siena pointed out.  Perfect!
