Piece Everything Together

New fabric arrives nearly every day. How fun!

My grandparents in Connecticut recently sent us a piece of orange fabric from The Gates project in Central Park.

Our plan is to piece everything into a quilt and then get wrapped in it during the ceremony. Here's the excerpt from the ceremony:

  • In the Jewish tradition, marriages take place under a huppah, which can be constructed from the fabric of friends and family. In some Native American traditions, couples are wrapped in a blanket to signify their coming together and their new life together.
  • In this symbolic gesture signifying unification, Matt and Sara will be wrapped in a quilt made from fabric from all of you, their family and friends.
  • This quilt signifies the warmth and support of family and friends that are needed to sustain a healthy relationship.
  • This quilt signifies the bond between Matt and Sara and the closeness that will continue to develop day after day.
  • This quilt signifies the comfort they bring to each other and will continue to bring to each other.
  • Together within this blanket, they will sign their marriage into being.
  • And embrace to celebrate that they are now officially united.
