    My Uncle is getting remarried in August and we were invited to the wedding. I feel stupid giving him money, so I figured I would make them a quilt. I was going to do something in browns, I think, but need ideas on a pattern. Help! :?

    Log cabins, split rails, Warm Wishes are some that go together quickly. Do you know what colors they like?

    My first thought was log cabin. They go together so fast and easy, and there are so many different ways you can arrange the blocks.

    I was thinking a log cabin, but I have done that for weddings before, so I was thinking of doing something else.

    Warm wishes? Not sure I have heard of that one. Probably would recognize if I saw it. I did a search. I like that one. I'll have to look up the other one that you suggested.

    Warm wishes would be great and easy, but looks awesome. you could use a focal fabric , something that he is interested in or a hobby . and maybe pick their favorite colors or a wedding color.....3 solid colors that frame the focal block. I keep looking for another reason to make another one. they turn out great. Elaine

    I was thinking I would just go neutral with browns or something that way it would go with anything. Their house is kind of plain and they don't really have many hobbies or interests. They make it a little difficult!

    We're going to four weddings this year, so after spending *way* too long on the first throw-sized quilt that was all HSTs, I did a D9P for the second wedding, and I'm doing a Rail Fence for the third. Dunno about the 4th yet :) D9Ps are fast and look good in more "modern" and "masculine" fabrics, too.

    Cheers,
    Jan

    I like this fabric that I found on thousands of bolts. It isn't too "girly". It would be a good focal point for the warm wishes. What do you think?
