Sewing for special celebrations

I enjoy making textile pieces to mark a special celebration. Click here to read about this quilt made last year for a 30th birthday:

Earlier this year, there was a very special 100th birthday to mark so I designed and made a quilt with exactly one hundred pieces contained within its borders:

This month there was a wedding and I was commissioned to design and make a cushion cover, which contains the initials of the bride and groom (E+D). There are also other small signs representing the happy couple, in the designs of the chosen fabrics.

Next up is a double-bed sized quilt for a couple with a 60th birthday each this year. I have promised to complete it before they turn 61!
