WEDDING QUILT (SIMPLE & PERSONAL)
What do you do for a wedding gift for a cousin who waited forever while finding the right guy and has a complete house already?? Make a wedding quilt of course !! This wedding quilt was simple and personal and super easy to make.
Cousin and hubby like to do road trips on the motorcycle, so that was the theme I went with. It’s not like they got a duplicate of this. They loved it.
Finished size: 70″ square.
For this quilt I purchased a yard of the center fabric and cut it square (so about 34 – 35″). I added 5 borders in various widths (2.5″ to 6″) that coordinated with the center fabric until it was the size I wanted. In this case I wanted a big lap quilt that my cousin and her new hubby could snuggle under on the couch or recliner.
I cut and pieced this quilt in one day while in Maine in Sept. 2015.
Machine quilted by RLM in an all over stipple design.
This wedding quilt could easily be made in any theme or size depending on the need or fabric available. This is a super easy way to make a personal quilt for that special person in your life.

Just got to tell you that since this post came out, I have made 7 quilts using this idea. Super easy and quick. Keep up the great ideas. Thanks for blogging about your quilt projects.
Wow, seven from that idea. No doubt each is different and personal. Great fun. Happy quilting.
This is a great idea for a personal wedding or other special occasion quilt. I love your fresh and creative ideas.
Thank you. I think it is just fun to try different ideas, and I encourage others to do the same thing in their quilts.
What a wonderful idea for a quilt for a couple at church who are getting married. They wanted a quilt, but I don’t feel my skills are up to some complicated pattern. This idea is absolutely perfect and very do-able.
So many times, simple is the best. This is such an easy way to make a really personal quilt for your young couple.
