The prompt for InstagramQuiltFest today is „Heirloom“. To be honest I never made a heirloom quilt, which for me means a large quilt with a lot of work including appliqué and/or pictures. The closest I got to a heirloom quilt was this LogCabin quilt I sewed for my nephew and his wife when they got married.
She is from Taiwan so I chose red as this is the color for a wedding in Taiwan and combined it with the grey and black for the male part. Some of the fabrics have gold prints to make the whole quilt more festive and sparkling. And as the bride is an architect the LogCabin pattern did fit perfectly.
It’s a king size quilt, of course machine sewn but hand quilted.
It was a lot of work and a lot of stress as we only had a 3 weeks advance notice of the wedding, but also fun to make. And I hope that they use the quilt and don’t regard it as a heirloom to be put into a closet and saved for future generation.
