I have been quilting for many years now and I have taken many classes and done many quilts but when the wedding quilt was chosen I realized that I could not do it on my own.
My daughter saw this quilt last year at our local quilt show
It is really quite gorgeous.

That one is a bit brighter than what she wanted but she could see that this was the one. It is definitely not an easy quilt, but will be so worth the trouble.
I found a certified teacher (yes, quilters go through a specialized training just to be able to teach the process) that was starting a 4 session class that I could join. I have three of the classes under my belt and am busy making the arcs for the quilt.
My daughter preferred more muted, earth tones so I didn't buy the kit that was offered but went out and made my own sets.
11 sets of 8 fabrics.
I have started piecing the arc and realized that it takes forever to complete each one,
so I'm in for a good haul.
Good thing she is an only child! LOL!
Will keep you updated on my progress.
