Finishing up the wedding keepsake quilt was a little slow-going, which, apparently, is something that my quilts can really benefit from! After what felt like a quilting fail with my last baby quilt, I decided to be more thoughtful with this one. In fact, I feel like I actually applied a lot of lessons learned from my previous quilting escapades. First of all, I applied the lesson of "less can be more" by opting for white fabric to go with my wedding scraps rather than a color or (heaven forbid) another pattern. Second, I recognized the limitations of my (and my machine's) quilting abilities, and I chose a lower loft batting (the thinnest I could find). Third, I tried to be very careful with my quilting stitching so that my fabric didn't pucker or pull.
I used scraps to make my binding, and since I put such great pains into rounding the corners of all of my wedding stationary, I gave my quilt rounded corners, too.
It is, hands down, the best quilt I've ever made. The corners match up and everything! (I'm a little ashamed by how wrinkled it is in these pictures, but I like to wash my quilts when they're done.)
