Julie Herman Wedding Quilt Triangle

Julie Herman at JAYBIRD QUILTS, is getting married.  Here is an excerpt from her blog:

“About our wedding quilt:A huppah is the canopy a Jewish couple stands under during the wedding ceremony. It can be a sheet, a family heirloom tapestry, or a quilt! It is held up by four poles and it symbolizes the home that we will build together.I am going to make a quilt for our huppah, naturally. It is going to be large and I need 222 small triangle blocks to make it. That’s where you come in.”

These are some of the Kona Solid colors she choose and Pink Chalk Fabrics put them in bundles.  I ordered one and got the middle bundle.  Their website was easy to use and the bundle came quickly.  Great service at Pink Chalk Fabrics.

Here is the block I made.  I used Suzanne Mcneil’s 10 minute block pattern and cut it down to the 6 inch triangle.

This is Julie’s plan for the Huppah.  All the blank triangles will be filled with triangles blocks from all over the world.  What a super fun thing to be a part of.  I can’t wait to see a picture of the Huppah when it is finished.

  1. I saw this last night on the way home from the adult session of Stake Conference. I have to admit that I often look at the pictures first then read it. I saw the block and thought “That looks like a ten minute block!” I am making a graduation quilt for a gal in our ward. I want to use the 5 minute block with red and white.

    • ohhhh….I had to go watch her video! Love it! Something new to try! Which option are you going to do for the graduation quilt? Thanks for the info!
