My Daughter’s Chupa Quilt

Posted on: May 24, 2009

Here is the picture of the quilt I created for my daughter’s Chupa.  It was part of the “ceiling” of the Chupa.

This is the most special chupa I have ever seen.

[…] of the quilt.  I really enjoy this pattern and have used it for my newly married daughter’s chupa [wedding canopy].  I got stuck when I had to do the borders, but I’ve solved this lingering […]

You have great talent. For those of us with no talent and living in much smaller orthodox communities and looking for a modestly designed and modestly priced wedding gown, I suggest Latter Day Bride.

Your quilt is very nice. I need to make one for my daughter but I am not sure what I’ll do yet.

The chupa you made for your daughter’s wedding is amazing! I am Catholic, but my cousin converted to Judaism after marrying the son of a Holocaust survivor. I am the only sewist on either side of their families. Although it is YEARS away (her twin boys are making their Bar Mitzvahs next May). I would love to make the chupa for their weddings. I have never mentioned it to her, but is it okay for someone who is not of the Jewish faith to undertake this work of love?

Thank you!

I’m not a rabbi or even qualified to answer religious questions but I don’t think it makes any difference who makes a chuppah. It’s exactly what you said it was, “a labor of love”.
