Ponti's Wedding Quilt

I decided to make one of my BFFs a quilt for her wedding.  I made this decision exactly 5 weeks before her wedding.  I have no idea why I thought this would be a good idea at the time.  But in the end everything worked out OK.

I have only made 3 quilts previously.  Two of these quilts were identical for twins, so this is my third ever quilt pattern.  I pinned this quilt way way back and went from there.

I learned the hard way that matching triangle points is quite difficult.  They don't line up like regular corners!  I'm sure everyone else already knows this, but I hadn't thought that far ahead when I picked the pattern.  After ripping out the first few, I got it figured out. Once I got the corners down, everything else worked its way out.  There are a few not perfect points.

Size: 74x58
Pattern: None written, Heavily inspired by Rebel Amish
Materials:  Kona Cotton Solids in White, Navy, Azure, and Turquoise
Kaffee Fassett Shot Cotton in Sunshine
Feather Fabric is currently unknown - I will update when I go to the store
Started: 8/3/2013 (materials purchased) - finished 9/6/2013 

in progress


  1. This is crazy gorgeous!
    I am particularly jealous because I've been collecting fabrics for a triangle quilt for over a year and am too scared to make it... and you just jumped right it! Way to go!
    This one is a stunner. Lucky BFF :)

  2. Great quilt! Love the colours! And all the negative space is very modern - and brave! And I love that you worked out the triangle corners for yourself...a real learning curve! Congratulations!

  3. Really nice! I love the design.

  4. What a pretty quilt! Great composition and colors!
