The next day, the teepee tables were re-set for a relaxed buffet lunch with live jazz and guests lounging on cushions in the sunshine. It felt like being a character in The Great Gatsby, especially with the groom now dressed in a pale blue pinstripe suit with floral Liberty print bow tie and the bride in a gorgeous coral coloured jumpsuit.
So for the first anniversary of Mr and Mrs Baird I created a quilt inspired by their wedding, from fabrics of blues and corals. I decided to try a more elaborate design than I've attempted before which took some fathoming and mathematical planning.
I absolutely LOVE the fabrics that went into this quilt, with this Kokka Fairground from Fancy Moon my favourite. I also adore the Liberty floral print from the V&A shop. Here's how the quilt came together.
I made most of the quilt pre-baby and finished hand stitching the binding after his arrival during a nap. Unfortunately I didn't manage to get a decent picture of the whole thing before giving it to the happy couple but these should give you an idea of how it turned out.
