Heirloom Quilt Chuppah

Forty of the couple's friends and family members created 12"x12" squares to contribute to this chuppah. The squares were creative and varied, including quilting, embroidery, t-shirts, beading, fabric pens, and even sewn-on stuffed animals. The back of the quilt has an original design based on the couple's wedding invitation, which was drawn by the bride. The chuppah is double-sided and has a light batting inside so it can be used as a quilt. After the ceremony, the chuppah was hung outside the tent, and people enjoyed showing off their squares and guessing which squares were made by whom. The chuppah was later turned into a quilt to keep the couple warm at night.

"A year ago our daughter was married and Nahanni designed and executed an absolutely beautiful chuppah for her wedding. This two sided chuppah, which was made with contributed squares by many of our daughter and son-in-law's friends and family, was the 'talk' of the wedding, so much so that we displayed it following the ceremony at the reception. Nahanni did a wonderful job, delivered it on time, and put so much of herself into this. We are most appreciative and would highly recommend her to others. I don't think we've ever seen a more beautiful example of a chuppah." --Parents of the bride
