The Clark Wedding Quilt

I am a true quilter in my heart of hearts. I love to take huge pieces of fabric, cut them into tiny pieces and sew them all back together again. I love the texture and dimension that quilting adds to a pieced top. I love the colors and patterns of the pretty fabrics. I love to see how it all comes together. I love that I can complete the blanket from start to finish all by myself. Quilting has given me creative confidence. I have made quilts for each of my siblings for their weddings, as well as quilts for each of my sweet nieces and nephews when they are born. It is a way that I show my love, support and enthusiasm for these wonderful people! This is my gorgeous, sweet sister Natalie and her equally sweet husband, Danny. Truly, he has a heart of gold and is the perfect companion to my sister. We are so lucky to have him. I felt like the 3rd wheel here, that's for sure.

The wavy edge is my favorite part of this quilt. My sister has it folded at the end of her bed to add a little bit more color to her beautiful cream and brown bedding.

Love you little sister!


  1. So beautiful! How I wish I would have had you teach me while I lived just down the street from you.

  2. It's about time you blogged about your wonderful quilts. I think it would be amazing if you took a picture of every quilt you made for a record. Wouldn't that be fun to look at? You could just start now that you have this creative blog journal. I am always so proud of you and astonished at your talents! Love, mom

  3. Yay I feel so special!! We seriously love our quilt! It's still on our bed and it's amazing! Thanks sissy! Love you!
