It has been said that every quilt has a story. This is very true of this Love quilt. A young couple got married in Hawaii last summer. The day before the wedding, a group from the wedding party rented scooters to have some fun on the island. Among the party was the groom. A concerned bride told her soon-to-be husband to be very careful with anything he did. Well, a few seconds on the scooter and a "Woo-hoo" and he crashed the scooter. You can imagine the rest of the story!
Good thing all was well with a few scratches, a bit of drama and some good teasing....
This is a pattern by Tula Pink, quilt made by Kathy, the bride's mom!
I stippled the whole quilt and practiced some custom swirls and pebbles in the letters. If one looks closely at the stipple they may find a few words adding to the memory with the wedding date, "woo hoo", Maui, and the couples name. I love little touches like this!
I didn't get any photos of the back on this one but it is backed with minky. And I have heard this quilt has been used for a bit of tug of war - everyone loves minky!!! :)
