I can’t throw out craft supplies. Especially if they’re from a project I love! That meant that two years after I got married in June 2011, I had a box of fabric still sitting in my closet. It had spare fabric from all sorts of projects: the toppers from our jam favours, the greens from the leaves in my handmade flowers, the extra bridesmaids’ dress fabric from Etsy, the giant swath of photo-booth backdrop fabric. I’d been saving them because I wanted to do something with them. Last summer, I decided it was time! Time toâ€ťÂ¦send them to someone else. I knew Quilts By Emily from her blog (and, of course, her Etsy shop full of cute quilts!), so I contacted her and asked if she would do a custom order. These things take time, and the finished quilt arrived just after Christmas!
We had chatted via email about what pattern the quilt would be—I chose this one because it was bright and modern, and I thought it would let all the very different fabrics be showcased individually. I was a little scared of the peaches fabric being too close to the greens!
