A Chuppah or Hoopa I Recently Quilted
Posted by sewgracefulquilting on Sunday, December 5th, 2010
I just had to share a very interesting piece I recently quilted. It's a chuppa or hoopa which is the canopy under which a Jewish couple is wedded. According to the Jewish Wedding and Chuppah blog http://chuppah.blogspot.com/ the ceremony is often outside under the stars. I thought that was interesting because some of the fabric I was given to quilt had sparkles. My photos don't truly show the beauty of the fabrics - the background was a beautiful lime green and the overlay fabric was almost like a chiffon with sparkles.
Here are some closeup photos of the quilting I did on the piece. All quilting was done freehand with no marking of any sort.
