Quilled Ketubah

This past fall I quilled a Jewish/interfaith marriage ketubah for a couple whose wedding took place in early December. The bride and I worked our way through the enjoyable steps of planning the design and selecting paper colors throughout the summer months.

The design was my interpretation of a monogram that Texas calligrapher Tara Jones created for the couple's wedding stationery. Tara lettered the warm white ketubah in a flowing, modern script.

The wedding color palette was smoke gray and pale blue, so I used two shades of gray quilling paper - actually silver and charcoal - along with blue-gray.

The 22" x 30" ketubah was signed at the wedding, and will be framed and placed on display in the couple's home to remind them daily of their vows and responsibilities to one another.

What a most beautiful Ketubah and a great item to have on display in ones home. The grey/silver colours work so well and the filigree shapes are perfect! I love the darker accents and the monogram ties is just lovely with the script. Congrats!
