xxth anniversary

IMG_1653Friends are celebrating their 20th anniversary today, so I made this mini-quilt to commemorate the occasion.

IMG_1641I used a light gray for the background fabric (since platinum is the traditional 20th anniversary gift), and I worked some diamonds into the quilting for good measure.

For the roman numerals, I incorporated fabric scraps from other gifts I have made for their family.

From a hamsa I made Julie for her 40th birthday, I used a batik fabric with little fish that is still in my stash. Fish on a hamsa are considered good luck, so they make a fortuitous reappearance.

IMG_5066From a mini-quilt I made their Daughter #1 for her bat mitzvah, I used a feathery palm print, egg fabric, and bird text print.

IMG_1646See–here’s some.

Daughter #2 has an amazing memory for numbers and dates, so I know she will like that this little anniversary quilt has a design based on numbers.

IMG_1652Fleur de lis is Julie’s favorite design motif, so when I poked around my stash, I found these two fabrics–one in orange of course. I’ve had a thing about orange for quilt backs lately. You can see how I did a ton of quilting on it–I tried out some new patterns for fun.

Finished size: 16 1/2″ x 26 1/2″.

Happy Anniversary, Julie & Greg!
