Wedding present quilt

Here is the quilt I had the yellow quandry about. As you can see, I did end up taking out the yellow bits--although I agree with the commenters that it gave it a kinda groovy vibe. But since it was a wedding gift and the recipient choose the fabric line, I decided I shouldn't stray from those colors.

Embroidered patch on back.


I had some scraps left over and decided to make a coordinating quilted tote bag to "wrap" it in.



And once the bag was made, it kept gaping open so I made these two little love birdies to weight it closed--appropriate for a wedding gift I thought!



The ribbons are just pinned into the bag, so they can remove them and use them as ornaments or whatever they like.

How Lovely! The tote bag is completely perfect, especially with the birdies.

May they be blessed with a long and happy marriage!
