I’m sharing two quilts in one post because they’re very similar and I made they mostly at the same time. You can find more detail of the process through my Instagram photos (I’m @CoopCrafts there) tagged either #24yearsquilt or #aandbquilt . First I started my colorful 24 Years Quilt, which was created to celebrate our 24th anniversary. There are 24 squares floating around in the half square triangles to represent our years together.
Just testing the unfinished top on the bed here, to see how the border rounds were looking.
And then my sister in law announced her wedding — in two months!! So my quilt was put on hold while I immediately started the A and B (Alison and Bryan) Quilt for the soon to be newlyweds. I wanted to use the same basic design, since it seemed like good luck to base a wedding quilt on one that was to celebrate 24 years together. I decided to completely leave out the squares since they hadn’t “earned” them yet. ;)
Eventually, they were both finished and approved.
And now I begin three graduation quilts, again in a similar style. Wish me luck!
