Spells LOVE!!!

I made this quilt as a wedding gift for some friends who have just gotten married. Theirs is a romantic tale... She was an international ballerina, and He travelled the world as a sound engineer for a circus. Cupid lured them both to Melbourne, Australia where they met in Go Go Dancing classes. Yes, it's a true story, wouldn't it make a great movie!

I had fun piecing the letters with my favourite fabrics, but decided the background should be simple so used a natural linen/cotton blend. 

I pieced the linen with various cream fabrics, here and there, just enough to add some interest. 

With so much negative space the quilting is a real feature of this quilt. I have Tanya Croft, long arm quilter extraordinaire, to thank for this. Her wonderful swirly quilting really brings the quilt to life. 

Just in case my newly wedded friends need a change from the Love side they can turn the quilt around and find a bright, frutti tutti fiesta on the reverse. 

Fun, bright colours to wish my friends a fun bright life together!

I included a tea towel from Spoonflower to mark their special year.

Don't you just love stories that end with "Everyone lived happily ever after..."
