|Two Coloured Wedding Quilt|
The black and white focus fabric is from the Mark Lipinski's "Califon" collection by Northcott Fabrics. It is beautiful fabric to work with and quilt. The solid black fabric and the solid white fabric are Kona Cotton... equally as wonderful to work with and quilt.
We knew that the married couple were moving away at the time of their wedding, so I quilted words of encouragement that are needed in any marriage. Yup, there are a lot of "I forgive you's" and "I am so sorry" followed closely with "I love you".... and peace, joy, hope, enthusiasm, laughter, compassion, gentleness, self-control, kindness, good health, and many blessings. The quilt block is the traditional Log Cabin -- a reminder for the wedded couple that their home is anywhere they are together. The centres not only represent the hearth and home but also includes fabric with shades of gray.... as not everything in marriage can be seen as black and white. In any argument, and especially when two people are newly wed, there are often moments of shades of gray.
