The Wedding Quilt

The stack of fabric shown here became the wedding quilt for Mark and Julia. I could only show a portion of it so you could see the detail. The beads sit atop a Korean chop key which is like an origami except you fold the fabric. There are 168 of these around the outside of the quilt. I made a lot of them when I was sitting in the ICU when my sister was so sick earlier this year. I took the quilt to the wedding so the kids could see the finished product. At some point it will hang on the wall of their home. With all that's happening in Malaysia that may not be any time soon.

How absolutely beautiful. Someday I'd like to take up quilting. My grandma made gorgeous quilts and I have no idea where they all ended up. A real shame. It's such a long lasting expression of love.
