16 Patch Wedding

If you are looking for my SMS giveaway it is here.

A few photos of a St. Louis 16 patch quilt I made for some friends who got married recently. The blocks were made by 4 different people (Kim, Cassie, Jes and myself). I made the border and assembled the top at the Stash Bash. 

I made this St. Louis 16 patch before it was cool. I'm A Ginger Monkey's Katy now has a StLouis16patch-a-long going on on instagram now. My blocks are smaller 8" finished and were made using this tutorial I wrote.

The backing is Robert Kaufman 108" wide Spot On.  PSA: You won't need to piece the back if you use extra wide fabric unless you only buy 1.5 yards of it (Doh). Luckily it was enough for the back, but I did have to piece it.

Close up of the yummy quilitng. I used a variegated Aurifil thread and quilted in overlapping arcs.


  1. I really like the look of the variegated thread in your last close-up. The thread really brings out the brights and makes the dark background have a home-y kind of look!I am also in the "I always underbuy backing" club. Every. Time.

  2. Ahead of the curve and crossed the finish line! Really liked the varigated thread and the quilting. I'll bet your friends loved the quilt!
