An Addition to a Wedding Quilt

This is a quilt I made a few years ago for some friends that were getting married.  They now added height to their bed and wanted the sides longer.

So this is what I did for them
I cut two long strips of fabric that I quilted.

 This is a pic of the backside before I washed the blue marker out.

I bound the bottom edge and added to the sides as it was a little short and laid them under the binding of the original quilt and sewed on the binding line.

 I'd say it came out pretty well.  The whites are slightly different colors, but it still works.


  1. Quilters are so clever, you did an amazing job! I have 2 quilts that need this, thanks so much for sharing your talent.

  2. What a great idea. It looks like the quilt was planned that way from the start.

  3. That was a brillant solution! What a wonderful treasure to have.

  4. OH MY GOODNESS!! Elaine!! That is so fantastic!! That would work perfectly for a quilt I have that's queen sized, but I wish it fit our king bed. Really superb job. The heart-themed feathering looks gorgeous with it, and as you say the different whites don't look bad together at all.

  5. P.S. - what a beautiful quilt to start with. :D


I love hearing from you. Please feel free to leave a comment.
