Project Notes

I designed this album cover as a gift for my brother and his bride.

The colors are pulled from their wedding party and the silhouette of the couple was created using clip art found online. The edges of the applique were stitched with a satin stitch, as well as the outer edges of the heart for added emphasis. I also added the hand-embroidered lettering (this was before I learned how to use my embroidery sewing machine). The quilting is all done using straight lines with my walking foot and my standard sewing machine. For the swirls coming off of the veil, I used a metallic thread.

I created the cover by piecing the outside cover, then sandwiching it with batting and a lining and doing the quilting.That was then stitched to an inside pocket that only covers about half of front and back covers. The edges were then finished by adding standard binding. This way,. the cover slips on the album and can be removed.
