triangles & weddings

I’m making a mini quilt for a mini quilt swap. The swap is one I found on Instagram, and thought I’d give it a go. It’s called the Schnitzel and Boo Mini Quilt Swap.
I’ve got a secret partner to make a mini quilt for; someone with tastes very much like mine. She likes bright colours and Kaffe fabric- someone matched us up well!
So I gathered up some fabric and decided to make a little quilt out of half-square triangle blocks.
I’m pairing warm colour triangles with cool colour triangles. I like the patterns you can create and the various arrangements to play around with. I put them up on the design wall and started with a diamond right in the middle, but then changed it to some off-centred diamonds and liked that better.
These haven’t been sewn together yet, so that’s the next step.
I just have to show you some photos from last weekend. We went to Byron Bay for the weekend for my niece’s wedding. The setting at the Harvest Cafe was lovely, the wedding was beautiful and we stayed in a very interesting place, with some visitors!
Just a few random photos without intruding on her privacy, but the wedding was just so lovely:

.. and the bride made her own wedding cake, which tasted as good as it looked!
