It’s SO done! After a weekend and a few extra days of relaxing after our friend’s wedding, I’m finally ready to show off the pictures of the latest wedding quilt. I’ve had a hard time not really talking about this quilt much over the last year (since it took so much work to make!). It came down to the wire (yep, I’m a procrastinator!) but I finished it up last Thursday night and had it ready to pass along to them on Friday at their rehearsal dinner.
I did mangage to squeeze in a photo shoot before I packaged it up!

It's Finished!

It’s amazing how different it looks to me when it’s open and not right in front of my face. I really didn’t get the full effect until I had it all done and could look at it from far away.

I put a patch on the back like I have for the last three quilts I’ve done. It looks about the same as the others!

I realized when I got home that my camera did not take very good pictures of Laura and Steve opening their quilt in the dark restaurant. So here’s the best I can do for now though:
It's Not a Girlie Quilt, Steve!

It’s such a big relief to have it done. Enjoy it, Laura and Steve! :)
