Kite Season Quilt

Kite Season Quilt

Rumor has it that in 18th century Japan, kites were totally banned. The reason? Folks were having so much fun flying kites, they weren’t getting any work done. I have to admit, I can relate. When I get excited about a new quilt, everything else fades away. The dishes can pile up in the sink, the lawn can grow knee-high, but I’m happy as a clam in my sewing room with a stack of freshly pressed quilt blocks.

Royal Wedding Quilt

Royal Wedding Quilt

On Saturday, May 19, the eyes of the world were fixed on the royal wedding of Britain’s Prince Harry and his lovely American bride, Meghan Markle. But my eyes? They were fixed on that veil!

Royal Wedding Quilt

It was 16.5 feet of flowing silk tulle with hand-embroidered flowers all along the edge: California poppy to represent Meghan’s home, wintersweet to represent the home of her prince, and flowers for each of the 53 countries in the Commonwealth. As you can imagine, it took hundreds of hours to stitch that garden of silk and organza blooms. And since they were working with such delicate, white silk tulle, the veil’s creators paused every 30 minutes to wash their hands. It was truly a masterpiece, but I’m exhausted just thinking about it!

This week’s new quilt, Royal Wedding, is based on the old English Wedding Ring quilt, but it’s so quick and easy, you’ll be well on your way before teatime! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
