We've been working hard on wedding prep this summer, mostly that involves lots of cleaning in the barn.
I took advantage of a clean barn wall yesterday to take some pictures of my latest quilt finish. This quilt will be for the wedding photographer; we have worked out an artist trade.
The pattern is Lucky Strike by Vintage Modern Quilts.
Megan, the soon to be bride, picked the pattern and fabrics to suit the wedding photographer's mid century aesthetic. She chose fabrics from my stash and says the inspiration for the fabric pull was "beachy." There are two prints and the rest are solids. The pattern calls for 9 half yards but we used about 18 fabrics. There was a bit of figuring before diving in to the cutting to make sure I could get all of the bowling pins cut from the smaller fabric pieces.
The pins are quilted with a loopy figure eight design in a pretty peach thread and the background has randomly spaced vertical lines in white thread to match the background.
There are a few scattered turquoise "KAPOW" style starbursts to add to that vintage feel.
I am really pleased with the finished look of this quilt.
