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.
