Grinch Wedding Quilt

As soon as I saw that Robert Kaufman was releasing a How the Grinch Stole Christmas fabric line, I immediately pre-ordered a fat quarter bundle and some yardage, knowing that it would make the perfect wedding quilt for a close friend.  I know that a Christmas-themed quilt for a wedding (especially one in May) seems rather odd, but my friend adores Christmas movies, and the Grinch is firmly at the top of her list of favorites.  The fabric wasn't released until just after her wedding, so the present was a few months late -though judging from her delight when opening it, I don't think she minded!

The design is pretty simple - I used nine of the images from the panel and framed each with red and green yardage from the collection and then joined it all together with 3.5" squares.   








I embroidered a label for the back in honor of their wedding.




Give away : I have some leftover scraps and squares... Let me know in the comments if you're interested, and I'll choose a winner at random on Thursday.


I am linking up to Fabric Tuesdayat Quilt Story - check out this week's projects.
