When my best friend got engaged, I knew her wedding present would be a quilt. We’ve been friends since we both moved to Charlotte at the same time, from different cities in 2003. After meeting, we hit it off and spent many weekends going to hear live music, grabbing dinner, making dinner, hiking, etc. Lisa got engaged in January, and set the wedding date for May, so I didn’t have a lot of time. In my quickness at picking out the pattern, the name of it went over my head until after the quilt was complete. I used Denise Schmidt’s Single Girl pattern, which is a play on the traditional Double Wedding Ring. Ha. I guess it is fitting since Lisa and I supported each other in the single times of life. So this pattern involved cutting out a LOT of pieces. It’s a good thing I was single at the time because I spent a lot of evenings cutting all the pieces out and eating whatever was convenient. I love how this wedding quilt came together though. Lisa has two favorite colors – green and orange. So the top has green circles, and I used a bright orange for the backing fabric. This is one I’d like to try to shrink down slightly and do a miniature version. You can’t go too small or it would be super tedious, but I’d be curious to try. It is on my list. Which is rather large.
