Wedding Quilt Part 1

Oh my husband has grand ideas.  Ready to hear his wacky idea for a quilt?  Brace yourself…Chicago Bears and Hello Kitty.

The quilt is for his lifelong friend as a wedding present.  Their wedding was in October and I have been putting off creating this quilt.

He wanted me to make them a quilt again with Chicago Bears and Hello Kitty. The bride does love her Hello Kitty, see the ice luge below.

So now it will be a first anniversary gift.  It was a gorgeous wedding. Plus we had a weekend in New York.

Here is what I agreed to in order to make this quilt happen.  Husband has to help me cut the fabric and press it.  I will do the sewing.

We selected these Kona Colors to make it work:  Pomegranate, Nautical, White, Black, Ash, and Kumquat.
