Wedding Napin Quilt, Part II

What’s that?  You don’t remember who I am, let alone Part I of this saga?  Well, let’s start with a bit of a refresher.

I’m Mrs. French Fries.  I’m a Milwaukee blogger who got engaged in September of 2008, and was married in June of 2010 in a whirlwind day that included torrential rain and awesome photos, jars of candy as our centerpieces and homemade wedding napkins for DIY decor, and the color pink.  Lots and lots of pink.

For those of you who don’t want to go back and read the original post, here’s a quick refresher for you:

  1.  I posted way back when about how I thought it would be awesome to make cloth napkins for our wedding, with the intent that after the wedding I’d make them into a quilt.   (Insert general schmoopiness and Barbara Streisand singing “The Way We Were” here.)
  2. My mom had to help me finish this little pre-wedding project, as I was low on time and high on stress (and not the best seamstress at that time).
  3. The napkins turned out great!  Everyone loved them!  Some people stole them, even when they were told that I would be using them after the wedding!  Skittles!
  4. I started making the quilt, got as far as finishing all of my quilt blocks, and then…just kind of stopped.  Quelle surprise.  It sat for 4-5 months in this state in my closet.
So, that’s the story of the napkins.  But when I say I “just kind of stopped,” I’m leaving a little bit out.  Okay, a pretty big bit out – this past summer, two days after our first wedding anniversary, I found out I was pregnant!  We were (and are!) over the moon excited, and we’ll get to meet our little one  — our little girl! — this coming February.  (If you’d like to follow my post-wedding and now baby adventures, I’m blogging them over here!)

After I was out of the sickness of my first trimester, I started thinking about doing a maternity photo shoot.  And, just a few weeks ago, I contacted our wedding photographer about the shoot – and she had time this past week to fit us in!  When I was trying to think of things that could be used as “props” in the shoot, my mind wandered to the unfinished quilt that was taking up space in my spare bedroom’s closet.  I quickly decided that it would be neat to include it in some way…you know, with all of the “continuity” that the quilt represents and the “Circle of Life” thing and whatnot.  (Insert Rafiki saying “It is time!” here.)

After deciding I wanted to use the quilt in the shoot, I had less than a week until the shoot.  (My mind flitted briefly to the thought that there’s not a snowball’s chance in hell of being able to get it done after the baby arrives.  This solidified my drive to get the quilt done – for real – this time.)

That’s what got me to JoAnn Fabrics at around 10:00 last Saturday morning, looking for quilt batting and backing.  It’s also what kept me in what will soon become our baby’s room for the remainder of the day, sewing up a storm and draining my iPhone battery whilst listening to the Adele station on Pandora.

I tried to take pictures of the process, but my inner monologue of “must get it done” got the better of me.  But, let’s recap what the quilt top looked like, shall we?   Here’s a picture from my original quilt post:

Ahhh, yes.  That caption at the top of the photo must have really spoken to me…considering I “basked” in the feeling of the quilt top for months upon months.  MOVING ON.

So, at this point I had my blocks assembled.  I proceeded to mark them in rows – A1 through A7 across the top, then B1 through B7 for the 2nd row, and so on.  Like this:

Then, I sewed my rows together: A1 to A2, etc., all the way over to A7.   Then, once all of my rows were complete, I sewed row A to row B, then what was now rows A & B to row C.  Pretty easy, but definitely time-consuming.   And, for those of you keeping track at home …that’s 49 quilt blocks, total.  GAH.  Someone go back to me when I was starting this quilt and tell me that “less is more.”

So, with my quilt top assembled, I had to admit…I was feeling pretty badass.  Well, as “badass” as a novice quilter can feel, I suppose.  I couldn’t revel very long, though – I still had to finish this thing.  I picked out my batting and my backing fabric based on my measurements I had taken, and realized that I needed batting and backing muslin that was at least 90″ wide in order to not have to piece things together.  Luckily, I found both at the store and was able to get home to make my quilt sandwich.

A quick note here: I considered using bias tape and edging the quilt that way (aka the traditional way) but because I was short on time, I didn’t want to mess with all of the pinning that required.  So, I Googled “quick way to finish a quilt” and decided on a “pillowcase binding.”  Basically, I cut my batting and my backing fabric slightly larger than my quilt top (to allow for error, which was inevitable on my part).  I hesitate to show you this picture because it’s when I was cutting everything aka NOT IN THE RIGHT ORDER, but it’s the only picture I took of this step.

Then, put my quilt top and my backing fabric right-sides together on top of my batting – so in the picture above, the batting and the backing fabric were switched in order.  I pinned it around all of the edges, and then sewed it on three of the sides, leaving one side open (it looked like a big duvet cover).  Then across the 4th side, I took the backing fabric and the quilt top and sandwiched them together by hand, making the 4th side match the other three.

Then, I topstitched the entire quilt along all 4 sides, and then quilted around each of the blocks, working in rows and columns.  I briefly considered quilting each individual block, realized that it would take me around 50 years, and thought better of it.

When I was finished, I had this:

And let me tell you…it feels so good to be done.  This was, by far, the biggest and most complicated sewing project I have ever been crazy enough to take on.  It represents countless hours of cutting, piecing, and sewing back together, and even though it’s not perfect (far from it!) I’m pretty proud of it.  Out of curiosity, I looked back to when I originally posted the idea for making the cloth napkins for my wedding –    it was two years ago yesterday.  I couldn’t help but think about how much my life has changed over the past two years…much like the fabric in this quilt.  How much sweeter my life is, and how happy I am.  (And then my pregnancy hormones kicked in and I started tearing up.)

The big question remains: would I do it again?  Yes, I would.  Knowing how much work it entails, I hesitate to say “in a heartbeat!” but when I think about how amazing it is to have a memento like this from our wedding…and then when I think about my baby girl crawling around on it in a few short months?  Well, let’s just say that I can’t completely blame the pregnancy hormones on the tears I get in my eyes.

 So!  If you’re a bride-to-be and considering this project, I would tell you that while it’s a lot of work and a long process – from picking out he fabric, to the sewing and pressing and folding of the napkins before the wedding, to washing them all afterward and then finally being able to start your quilt – but it is definitely doable, and it makes for a pretty awesome wedding momento when you’re done.
Do you have plans to use your wedding decor in a unique way after your wedding is over?   If so, I’d love to hear about it in the comments!

Wedding Napkin Quilt: Let’s Start the Insanity.

I’M BACK!  …er, well maybe I’m just back for a hot minute.  But!  I’m so happy to be posting here again!  I’ve missed everyone!   Have you done something new with your hair?  Have you lost weight?  It’s been SO LONG!  Ok…maybe not.  It’s been 2 months.  Whatever.  Let’s get to the point of this post, mmmmmkay?

Once upon a time (or really, last summer) I channeled my inner Matt Foley – Motivational Speaker, and posted about how I was going to go out and get the (sewing) world by the tail and wrap it around and put it in my pocket by taking an online sewing class.   I’m happy to report that I have not resorted to eating a steady diet of government cheese whilst living in a van down by the river. 

In fact,  Home Ec (and married life in general!) has gone quite well and I’ve learned a lot (let’s just not talk about how I haven’t exactly finished all of the Home Ec tutorials/classes…that’s another story for another day).  I’ve learned enough to sew curtains for some of our windows, two quilted table runners for our dining room table, and a tote bag (with a lining! and handles! and an inner pocket!) to carry my extra “gear” to and from work.  I’ve come a long way from being scared to even thread my sewing machine, but I admit that I still have a very long way to go. 

Way before all of that Home Ec stuff, though….all the way back when I was a blushing bride to be, I posted about a grand idea I had to make all of the napkins for our wedding reception.   You’ll also recall that my mom had to step in and finish that project for me because I was full of ideas but low on time (and confidence!) to finish them myself.  And now, just because I love remembering how they looked on our wedding day…a little bit napkin action:

So, where is all of this back story going?  Well, I’m happy to report that I’m about halfway finished with my biggest post-wedding craft project: our wedding napkin quilt.  (pauses for thunderous applause from the crowd….senses none is coming…moves on.)

I just want to stop here for a second and say that I don’t consider myself a “quilter”, so consider this your disclaimer.  You’ve been warned, and it might not be pretty learning from someone like yours truly.  But, I’m going to post this as a psuedo-tutorial — simply because it was easier for me to write it that way. 

I say “pseudo-tutorial” because I figured out very early on in this process that I needed a quilting tutorial for a complete novice since I had really only had the basics of sewing down: threading the machine, operating the machine in a basic manner, stitch length, tension, how to actually sew in a straight line so it doesn’t look like I’m sewing after 5 martinis.  Luckily I found this tutorial by Amy Smart from Diary of a Quilter and it. is. fantastic.  I’m following it to a tee, with the only difference being that my quilt will end up being bigger since I had a lot of napkins that I wanted to use (her tutorial is for a smart & manageable 16 block quilt…mine is clocking in at a ridiculous and insane for a beginner 49 blocks.)

Following the tutorial, I started out by cutting my napkins into blocks according to the following dimensions: 11+” x 13″.  I will say that this “+” of fabric on the one end comes in extremely handy later when you’re squaring up all of your quilt blocks once they’re pieced together.  Then, I got up close and personal with my self-healing mat, my rotary cutter, and my fabric ruler and I cut the blocks into their smaller “strip” dimensions: 3″, 1 1/2″, 2 1/4″, and 6+”.   

Then, start piecing together your blocks.  The idea here is that you keep the left-most piece of fabric and the right-most piece of fabric the same, and switch up the two middle “strips” of fabric — that way, once you sew your block together, you have a bit of consistency with your pattern.  I took pictures of this process as I was piecing together one block.  (Note: I used a 1/4″ seam allowance — what Amy recommends in her tutorial…which is basically just lining up the right hand side of the fabric with the right hand side of the presser foot on your sewing machine — see step 3 below.

 In step 1, I have my left-most 3″ strip on the bottom, and the piece that I’m stitching to it (the 1 1/2″ strip) on top.  In step 2, I’m now joining the 1 1/2″ strip (now not visible) to the 2 1/4″ strip.  In step 3, I’m joining the right-most 6+” strip to the 2 1/4″ strip.  Step 4 is a picture of all of the pieces stitched together. 

So, that’s all there is to building your quilt blocks!  Repeat this process 15 (or if you’re cray-cray like me….48) more times, and your blocks will be finished.  Next up?  Ironing them.  If yours look anything like mine did, they’ll look like this after you’re done piecing them together.

No bueno.   Dig out your iron and your ironing board that have been relegated to the back of your spare closet and steam those puppies so that all of the seams are facing one direction like this:

Beautiful.  Again, repeat this process with all of your blocks.  Now, take your blocks back to your trusty self-healing mat and grab your rotary cutter and fabric ruler — trim those babies down until they measure 11″ square.  

At this point, you’re probably sick and tired of working with individual blocks and anxious to see how everything is going to look put together.   But, like an oasis in the desert or sweet (quilting) manna from the heavens, the fun part is up next: laying out all of your blocks and figuring out your quilt pattern.

You’ll need a pretty large area to do this — I used my living room floor.  I started with whatever block I wanted in the upper-left hand corner of my quilt, and moved left to right, like you would when you’re reading a book.  Alternate the pattern on the blocks and soon you’ll have something laid out that resembles this:

As you can (hopefully sort of) see, my blocks repeat every row so that the fabric in the blocks running diagonally from the upper left to the lower right repeat — this is probably easiest to notice on the black fabric blocks.  I digress.  You can pick any pattern you want, or choose no pattern at all.    Whatever trips your trigger.

The next step is sewing all of the blocks together into strips and then sewing the strips together to make your quilt-top….but you’ll have to stay tuned for that because I’m tired (and if we’re keeping things real, it’s because I haven’t finished that part yet). 

Are you planning on repurposing any of your wedding decor?  Are you making wedding napkins? (Because, if so…you rock.  Not that everyone else reading this doesn’t rock, too…you’re all superfantastic!)

Cloudy With a Chance of French Fries: À Bientôt!

At the end of our reception, the hum of excitement of the day began to get a bit quieter.  People started to filter out, the remaning candy in our centerpieces was distributed, and before we knew it, our DJ was playing our last song.   I remember thinking that the end of the evening had come all too soon, and I longed for just a few more minutes to soak everything in.

Molly, our photographer, took so many amazing photos of our wedding that I will treasure forever,  but of course even she had to leave our reception at some point.  At the end of the night during our last song, one of Mr. FF’s groomsmen snapped the the picture I’ve posted below.  It’s obviously not a pro pic; it’s a little blurry, and the quality of it is definitely lacking since I had to “steal” it off of the groomsman’s Facebook page.  There are people blocking the shot, and you can’t even see my face.  There’s a date stamp that is slightly bothersome, and the shot is pretty dark.

While it might not look like much to you, to me, it’s the moment that this photo represents that makes me a bit teary-eyed.  While neither one of us was aware that this picture was being taken, I will never forget how I was feeling at that moment…being in my husband’s arms, swaying slowly back and forth with our eyes closed so we could soak in the final minutes of our wedding day.  Everything and everyone else faded into the background, and at that moment…it was just us.  We did it!  We were married.  We were deliriously happy.

If I could wish one thing for you on the day of your wedding, it would be to have a moment like that;  one where you completely are focused on your new spouse, and everything else fades into the background.  For some, it might happen when you’re walking down the aisle or during a first look.  For others, during your vows or your first dance as husband and wife.  And for others still, it might be at some completely random moment during your day when you least expect it.  I wish for you that moment, because months (and I hope!) years from now, you can look back on that moment and still get goosebumps and feel your heart swell with the indescribable love that you felt on your wedding day.

 

It has been an honor blogging my wedding with all of you —  and to be honest, I am at a loss for words to sum up how I feel about the experience.  I’ve put off my final post for quite some time now, not wanting to say goodbye to the support, the advice, and the friendships that I have gained from blogging in this wonderful community.  Weddingbee truly is indescribable.  I’m not going to say goodbye, however.  As a proper French Fry, I will say “à bientôt” — because I truly hope to see you soon!  If you want to know where to find me now that I’m not donning a wedding gown, I’m blogging about my newlywed life over at Wife, From Scratch.   Please drop by; I’d love to hear from you!  


When the rain is blowing in your face
I could offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love.

 

Bien des choses à tous (best wishes to all),
Mrs. French Fries

Cloudy With a Chance of French Fries: Fab Photos.

Early on in my planning, I had determined that somehow, some way, we would have a photo booth at our wedding.  Whether we made room in our budget to rent one, or if we made it ourselves and appointed someone to man it with my MacBook, this was something that I really wanted.  Mr. FF was slightly more reserved about the idea, however.  (I’m sure it had something to do with rental fees…although at the time he claimed that it was an “unnecessary expense”.  Hrmph.)     Fortuitiously, when we went to our venue’s food tasting they had a photo booth set up.  Mr. FF & I jumped in for a sample pic and we had a blast.  After a little bit of discussion and some budget negotiations, Mr. FF was also on board with the photo booth idea, although I think that he still wasn’t sure what the big deal was.

Well….let’s just say that if you had asked him the day after the wedding what “unnecessary expense” he was glad we splurged on, it would be the photo booth.  Since we opted to use our photo booth as our guest book, we chose a package that gave each booth attendee a copy of the photo strip while reserving one to be mounted in a guest book along with a signature and well-wishes from our guests.  It.  Was.  Awesome.

We rented our booth from 7 PM to 10 PM, which we figured would be ample time for people to get some great shots.  We didn’t include any props for people to use, but it turns out that they didn’t need them — as you’ll see, they got quite creative.  Mr. FF & I started things off:

But soon, others got in on the fun.  You’ll notice that as the night goes on (and the alcohol starts to flow a bit more freely) things got a little crazy — everyone had a blast.

I could write captions to the pictures, but I think they speak for themselves.  :)

So many of our guests said that they had never been to a wedding with a photobooth before — and that they thought it was so unique.  It just proves that while something might seem “played out” in wedding blog land, chances are your guests aren’t surfing 50+ wedding blogs a day — ideas that might seem too overdone to you will most likely be completely new to them!  If you love the idea, do it.  You won’t regret it!

Cloudy With a Chance of French Fries: And We Danced.

In my last post, I mentioned that my *favorite* part of our reception was dancing.  Little known fact about me: in general, I’m a pretty shy gal.  I don’t really like being the center of attention, and have a propensity for blushing when put in the limelight.  But.  BUT!  I love to dance.  Somewhat of a contradiction,  I know, but it’s true.  I have kept my booty on the dance floor all night at all of the weddings I have been to in recent memory, and at the last wedding Mr. FF and I attended, he practically had to drag me off of the dance floor.

Therefore, in the weeks preceding the wedding  I told everyone with a pair of ears that if they wanted to find me after dinner at our reception, they should look for me on the dance floor.  We had picked really good music for our “must-play” list, and darnit…I wanted to celebrate!  People asked, “But what if people want to talk to you?”  My reply was “then they can talk to me while we dance together.”  :)

Mr. FF and I started things off  with our first dance as a married couple.  We thought long and hard and spent several nights discussing what our first dance song should be.  We almost did a fun, fast dance to Hall & Oates “You Make My Dreams Come True”, but the volume and weight of my dress wasn’t conducive to it.  We finally settled on the song “To Make You Feel My Love,” which has been covered by several artists.  We chose the Kris Allen version, not because we’re die-hard American Idol fans, but because the Adele version of the song made me kind of sad…and the Kris Allen version is quite sweet.

So, in the arms of my new husband….we danced.

And we talked and canoodled and did the middle-school sway around the dance floor.  It was perfect.

We ended with a kiss and a dip, and called our first dance a success!

Next, I danced with my dad and Mr. FF danced with his mom to “Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong.  Ever since I was little I have loved this song, so it was a natural “parent dance” choice.  We opted to dance with our parents at the same time, and I think it worked out really well.

Finally, we opened the dance floor to everyone.  We started off with some slow songs and some “wedding classics”…

But soon, the dance floor was jam packed.  Merriment, hysterical laughter, and awesomely bad dance moves ensued.   It. Was. Awesome.

As promised, I kept my gigantically gowned self on the floor all night.  My dress got stepped on, ripped, dirtied, and had drinks spilled on it, and I didn’t care.  By the end of the night it felt like it weighed 80 pounds and I was tripping over the unraveling hem….but I wouldn’t change it for anything.  To say that I had an amazing time would be a complete understatement.  I think my perma-grin in all of these pictures says it all.

Up next, while some danced….others got silly in our photobooth!

Cloudy With a Chance of French Fries: Dinner and a Show

“Make sure you eat at your reception!”  Before our wedding, this was the one thing that we heard from so many of our friends that were already married.  Thus, we were bound and determined to try some of the amazing food that we had selected for our reception. Us, not eat? Ha!  You haven’t seen the damage I can do to a bowl of pasta.  Or a quesadilla.  Or mashed potatoes.  Or really…any combination of cheese and carbs.

Once they opened, Mr. FF and I took the lead and visited our three food stations.  For some reason, I remember exactly what I picked out: a mashed potato martini, some pasta, and a chicken quesadilla (uhm, see above comment re: cheese + carbs).

Mashed.  Potato.  Martini.  NOM.

 

When we got back to our table….we looked at our plates, and then at each other, and confessed that we just weren’t hungry!  I think the excitement of the day had taken its toll on our appetites. We ate a little bit, but picked at our food for the most part. Luckily, our coordinator thought ahead and sent some of everything up to our room so we could eat after the reception ended. Super thoughtful, and much appreciated — so future brides, take note!

Us, making a valiant effort to eat our dinners like we were instructed!

Since we didn’t eat much, we took the opportunity at dinner to go around and visit our guest tables. I’m really glad we did it this way – we didn’t have a receiving line or a cocktail hour to talk to people, and going from table to table worked really well.  I think, in my bride-addled brain, that the question I asked people most after thanking them for coming was “did you get enough to eat?”  I definitely showed my German “food=love” roots.

Everyone remarked that they were having a great time, definitely got enough to eat, and that they *loved* the candy centerpieces! I saw several people walking around and mingling with other tables, while filling up their goody bags.  Success!  People were having fun, and mingling!

Shortly after dinner and before our first dance, we showed our wedding slideshow.  In the weeks before the wedding,  we collected pictures and I worked like crazy to get them all uploaded into our slideshow program (we used iPhoto) and organized — we settled on alternating a picture of Mr. FF with a picture of yours truly, and then adding pictures of both of us together at the end.   It was more work than I expected, but it paid off in the end; our slideshow turned out great, and I think our guests really enjoyed it (judging by their cheers and laughs!).

Here it is, in case you’re interested in seeing it — although, fair warning: there’s a lot of awkward middle/high school pictures of us both!

After the slideshow, I remember having a quiet moment while we were sitting at our table.  I looked at my new husband, at all of our guests having a great time, and at all of the decor and details that I had worked so hard on…and I had a “wow, I really did it!” moment.  I can’t exactly describe it, but that moment made up for the trials and tribulations that we had encountered during planning. We were married (!!!) and everyone was having a great time — and it was about to get even better…because my favorite part of our reception was about to start.  Dancing!

Cloudy With a Chance of French Fries: In Fact, Let’s Toast to Toast.

After cutting our cake, we settled in for toasts!

Mr. FF’s brother / Best Man went first, followed by my sister / Matron of Honor.  Of course, being that they are our older siblings (we’re both the babies in our families!) there was a little bit of good-natured ribbing going on. 

 
They did a great job — I know that both my sister and Mr. FF’s brother aren’t the most comfortable with public speaking, but they gave wonderful and touching toasts.  Of course, I teared up at my sister’s toast, complete with a quivering chin:

 Hello, French Fry cry face!  Good to see you again!

Next, my Father gave a toast, thanked everyone for coming, and recited two Irish blessings for me and Mr. FF. He also welcomed Mr. FF to our family as his new son, which meant a lot to Mr. FF.

Finally, Mr. FF’s mom gave a blessing over us as a couple, and said our blessing before dinner.  

I had a friend videotape all of the toasts, and I’m so glad I did.  Just the other night I re-watched the footage, and they all made me tear up once again.  We truly are so lucky to have such wonderful and loving people in our lives. 

Mr. FF then got up, thanked everyone for coming.  It was important to us to thank everyone, but I have a bit of an aversion to speaking in front of big groups of people.  Mr. FF?  Not so much.  (Zig to my zag and all of that.)  Then, unexpectedly, he toasted me, retelling how our relationship evolved and how he knew early on that we were meant to be together.  


 These are some of my favorites. 

With that, the toasts were complete and it was time for everyone to eat!   That’s up next.
