It was one week before the wedding and my daughter, Summer, suggested a white wedding quilt, something special using all white fabrics. She said that she wished she had gotten one for her wedding. That really appealed to me as I had been wanting to make an all white quilt for some time.
As I was thinking/planning the quilt I got the idea to throw some purple in as a feature somehow. I didn't want big purple squares with the white so I thought a stripe of purple would be nice. I wanted it around the edge but not on the outermost edge.
I drew it out on graph paper and then set about cutting and sewing. It was easy to do the mid-section since it was all whites and the four corners were white. To get the stripe I had to cut and sew together a strip of purple to the white fabrics I had selected. Each 9" square was always 3/4 white and 1/4 purple but the positioning of the purple was key to the stripe.
When I had it all sewn together I was very happy with the look of the stripe on the smooth side. I was still worried the fluffy side would have a more disjointed look but by the time I had it all cut, I couldn't be happier.
