Custom Wedding Quilt

This custom wedding quilt is my first quilt finish of 2017 and I’m sharing it in the Fall 2017 Blogger’s Quilt Festival!  A customer asked for a quilt that her wedding guests could sign in lieu of a guest book.  She and her fiancé are huge Iowa Hawkeyes fans so she wanted the quilt in Hawkeyes colors.  I appliquéd the logo and their names into bigger blocks to personalize it.  I was inspired by a triangle quilt in similar colors so I threw a few triangles into the mix as well.

This was a fun quilt to put together, except for the 2 extra trips to the fabric store to get more fabric.  I made several cutting mistakes!  Luckily I found a great local quilt store in the process.
