Wedding Quilt

My old school friend (we have known each other for over 40 years)is getting married in July so I have been mulling over in my mind what style quilt I should make for her. I kept thinking I would like to use just basic squares, knowing this would be quite simple and therefore quick to make but was wondering is this really just a bit boring? However, I just kept coming back to the thought that actually I really like basic squared quilts. I have a lot of Liberty squares that I am going to make into a quilt for myself...who knows when?
So I searched Amy Butler squared fabric and came across this beautiful quilt on http://www.redpepperquilts.com/2009/11/amy-butler-love.html
So now I know what I am going to make for my friend, I am going to buy ready cut Amy Butler squares from her 'Love' range...perfect!

Squares are beautiful - I love the unfussiness (?) of them. Have you seen Jane Brockett's Gentle Art of Quiltmaking book? Perfect.

I love this quilt too - this range of fabric is so pretty and has so many colours that it is bound to fit in anywhere. Looking forward to seeing it. xx

Wonderful idea - I'm working on 2 very special wedding quilts, too. Can't share until we gift them, but lots of fun!

I know about Amy Butler fabrics from my sister-in-law, and I know how beautiful they are. Your friend will be soooooo blessed. A homemade quilt is the most special gift!
