Breath of Avignon: Perfect Wedding Gift

The Breath of Avignon quilt is finally done!  It will be on its way to its new home in the next few days, and I hope the bride and groom like it!  It’s a late wedding present, but hopefully it was worth the wait…my mom would say better late than never.

The bride and I are childhood friends, and we were also roommates in college.  She always loved everything from France.  Anytime I see anything that reminds me of Provence I think of her, so I chose the Breath of Avignon line for this quilt because it completely reminds me of her…just so fitting.

I used Carolina Patchwork’s Sweet Garden pattern.  The pattern uses 1 layer cake plus some yardage, and I love how the pattern shows off the beauty of the entire line without feeling like it’s busy.  That’s my biggest issue with many layer cake patterns…they feel busy to me, but in this pattern, the addition of the solid sashing is very pleasing and calming, and yet it allows the fabric line to stand out.

The backing and binding fabric  is not from the Breath of Avignon line, but it looks like it fits perfectly!

I do love how it turned it!

Post wash measurement approximately: 60.5″ x 61″

    I just wanted to say, this is (of course, sentimental preferences for my own quilt aside), the most beautiful quilt I have ever seen in my life. Primary colors are my favorite, and the subdued nature of the ones in your quilt are so whimsically old world. I love it Rachel. You are a true artist!
