The quilt pattern is Pixelated Heart found on the Blue Elephant Stitches blog, plus I added my own little twist. Now you know I can not make a pattern exactly as written, that so would not be "Wilde" it had to be done and I like how it turned out.
I used all medium scrappy 4 1/2" squares for the heart and a mix of creams and white for background. The quilt also contains a couple of special pieces, you may be able to tell from this picture that there are two small hearts within the large heart. I did this by layering fabric and batting on each side of the main batting UNDER the top piece.
Once I placed them where I thought they should go within the heart, I basted them in place. Using the window I was able to double check the placement before layering the sandwich. (Top-batting-backing). I did the same thing to add a second set of hearts on to the back
For the backing I added a pink solid triangle to write a message to the couple before attaching the binding.
I also wrote a wish to the couple inside the binding, other than this picture I expect it never to be seen. You see it is within a triple layer of fabric - love is magical and wishes do come true I believe ~ I wanted it to be there without showing
|May your lives be joined together like the pieces of this quilt, filled with love, joy and happiness |

In the blogosphere there are a couple of quilt patterns often used for weddings, with the addition of my hearts, I think this is my new favorite.
XOXO HAPPY COUPLE
