Wedding Quilt

The last several weeks I have been working on a wedding quilt for my niece, April.  I finally finished just minutes before I left for the airport to attend the wedding in Las Vegas (my hometown).  The wedding was last Saturday and everything was beautiful.

ImageHer colors were blue and salmon so I picked several blue prints and designed an elongated monkey wrench block.  I didn’t want the quilt to be too “girly” so I just adding a touch of salmon in the corners of the blocks.  

ImageThe few salmon blocks I did make became part of the pieced back.

ImageI quilted it with several different designs in the blocks and traditional freehand feathers in the borders.

ImageI presented it to the happy couple a couple of days before the main event.  They seem very pleased with the results!ImageApril and Brandon on their wedding day, August 17, 2013.  Best wishes to the happy couple!  I know they will appreciate the quilt and that makes it all worth it.
