Malka Dubrawsky design in the American Patchwork & Quilting August 2012 issue. It seemed right for the modern young couple in mind, although the blocks were rather larger than I desired so I redrafted the pattern to make them finish at 24" instead of nearly 36".
Choosing the fabrics is my favorite part! The green dot, red oriental, and teal ginkgo prints were from stash and the other prints found at JoAnn's Fabrics. I especially loved the mustard print.
The blocks came together quickly--the hard part was finalizing the layout. My readers were very helpful in voting for the best one. Here my quilting assistant Mini aided me in photography on a windy day.
I opted for the same narrow-spaced wavy line quilting that the designer had used.
And here they are toasting each other as husband and wife. Our best wishes for many happy snuggling hours ahead!
