The week before Christmas two of my dear friends were getting married.
I decided about 3 weeks before that to make them a wedding quilt.
I choose to make my Little Crosses pattern which is actually cot quilt size,
so I made quite a few more blocks to enlarge it to a queen size.

This is the original quilt, Little Crosses.

I wanted to use modern colours with a soft grey background.
Here is a photo of the first fabric pull.

The fabrics are by Carolyn Friedlander, Cotton and Steel, and a few others that I added later as I needed more fabrics!

The grey fabric is from the Art Gallery Fabric's Pure Elements range and the colour is Mystic Grey.

I really like how the sashing is the same colour as the background fabric used in the blocks. It makes the crosses float and become the stars of the quilt!

I then added a white corner block in the sashing.

And a border which uses the same size squares as used in the blocks.

For the quilting I just kept it simple.
Lots and lots of straight lines!!

The backing is a Cloud 9 organic cotton, so the quilt is extra soft.
Another Cotton and Steel fabric was used for the binding.

I am so pleased to report that the happy couple loved it!
