Description: At their wedding in 1997, Scarlett Rose & Dan Nobriga's guests signed blocks for this quilt, which Scarlett put together as a quilt top and partially quilted.
Other Notes: Many of the guests at Scarlett & Dan's wedding signed printed muslin blocks that Scarlett put into this quilt, which also uses most of the fabrics left over from her making of the wedding party's outfits. Scarlett had taken apart a used Japanese wedding kimono, bought in San Francisco, and reverse appliqued the machine embroidered cranes into a wedding kimono outfit she created. The red brocade fabric was used for the kimonos worn by the 2 Matrons of Honor and the 2 bridesmaids. The solid black fabric was used for the men's kimonos. The Scottish crest shown at the top border is Dan's family crest for clan Gunn. Scarlett's wedding pictures are still very popular pages on her website, with many wedding sites linking to them as an excellent example of a theme wedding., Mary Ross Peard was one of Scarlett's Matrons of Honor. The other Matron of Honor was Rose Marie Straw. Mary Ross Peard did all of the silk ribbon embroidery on this quilt.
