Thatís a really good point that Iíll keep in mind for the future. I know sheíll be happy with it. And heíll go with what she tells him.

I agree to just make sure the recipient would like to have a quilt made for her and groom. Sometimes folks don't like or appreciate quilts. Good luck to you

Disappering 9 patch is easy and elegant.

If you are wanting to use your Accuquilt 2 of my favorites that make great wedding quilts are the Hunter Star and Arkansas Traveler. Incorporate any color scheme that the bride has chosen for the wedding and use those in the quilt. These are the 2 dies that I find most attractive for this type of quilt.

A DWR is extremely ambitious, I just did my first one not too long ago for my sister and it does require time and patience. Should you choose to go the DWR route, might I suggest you check out Shar Jorgenson's tutorials on YouTube, they were extremely invaluable to me. She broke everything down, explained why the connecting corners are better on the bias, how to check for a scant quarter inch seam allowance. I had those tutorials on repeat the entire time I was working on my sister's quilt. Once you get the hang of it, it's actually not that hard and I was able to conquer my fear of curves. If time is a constraint, then maybe a log cabin or an Irish Chain in their wedding colors would be better and faster.

I'm agreeing with all of these suggestions but might toss in there to not necessarily keep to the wedding colors. If you intend/hope that the quilt will stand the test of time, use neutral colors that will blend with any decor over the years. What is coming to mind for now is "earth colors". Or perhaps colors of the season of their wedding?

I wound up asking and making sure sheíd want one- she has a king size bed- which I donít think I have the stomach or space to make. Maybe the quilt top, but Iíd need to have someone else finish it. Otherwise, I think Iím going to make a lap quilt size to put on her sofa (if thatís a thing)

I looked at all of the suggestions and like this one a lot. Right now, this is my pick. Iím thinking of adding additional smaller hearts for the kids. Thanks for the suggestion!
