As of today, we have about 61 blocks out of 222 we'd like to include in the quilt. If you've been considering making one but you haven't gotten around to it yet, we'll take it!
We're really loving seeing all of your creations. It's also cool to see how well they all play together.
All of the love and support everyone has shared with us as we prepare for our wedding celebration has been wonderful! Thanks so much, everybody!
Our siblings also wanted to get in on the block making action, so we had some nice cutting and sewing bonding time with them.
Lawrence's sister (and one of my bridesmaids), Leora, wanted to feature a heart and 2 different blues in the background of the block she made for us.
Law helped her out with a ruler, cutting and piecing demo. It was pretty impressive to watch!
My SIL Karin played with some fabrics and came up with this design.
My brother, Brad, designed his on the computer and then I had the challenge of cutting it all and figuring out how to make it. (He did all the sewing.)
So far, so good, and sew much fun!
Keep those blocks coming. We can't wait to bring them all together to feature them front & center during our ceremony. Our friends at Pink Chalk Fabrics still have some bundles available if you need a quick stash refresh before sending in your blocks (and we'll take more than one block if you've got enough extra fabric). Thanks all!
(UPDATE: Thank you so much to everyone who sent a block in for the quilt! We have more than enough needed to finish the quilt. Quilters are the best! Thank you so much for all of the love and support!)
