The color scheme was based on the bride's preference for purple, and the groom's for earth tones. Their names and wedding date are embroidered in the center.
While visiting my mom in June, I was lucky to find almost all of the batiks at Bob's Variety, a little store in Sun City West, AZ, that happens to have a great fabric selection amongst a bunch of odds and ends.
The dark brown happens to have a purplish cast to it, and the light mocha is from my stash (which is NOT big in batiks!). As for the background, it's a beautiful batik with a hint of blue and tan. Boy, did I get lucky!
The edge of this quilt has a faux piped edge, which really gives the quilt a beautiful finish. I've got a tutorial for piped binding so you can add to your quilt!
And what post wouldn't be complete without a discussion on the quilting?? I love Glide thread, and used it in a burnished gold color that was used throughout, even on the back. Quilting was kept rather simple on the wedding rings themselves, just 1/4" outlining and circles (and no, my circles are not perfect. Got to work on that!). Inside the rings is just a ladder, back and forth, and the main background is my McTavishing style. Here's the back,
and back closeups.
