Mini-quilt wedding gift
I followed this tutorial at Two More Seconds for the heart applique, but made it a lot smaller. Most of the fabrics are from a warm scrap pack I got on sale from Hawthorne Threads a few months ago, and a few are leftovers from other projects. I embroidered their wedding date by hand before I sandwiched and (minimally) quilted it.
Here's the stand. There are two narrow vertical sleeves on the back of the quilt to put over dowels that go in the holes of the stand. The T and A are in blackboard bold (a mathy font - both my father-in-law and his wife are math professors), which fit perfectly because the theme of the wedding was "Nerd love"!
