Wedding Quilt - Finished!!

The wedding quilt is finished! (Insert happy dance here!) I had a couple of brave quilt holders this afternoon, so I managed to get some pictures, despite the cold.

 Aren't they handsome quilt holders?

I had them standing halfway up a snowbank, so they'd be tall enough that the quilt wouldn't puddle on the ground, and I snapped a shot to show how big the snowbank actually is.
I found it really hard to get good pictures of the back of the whole quilt, but this one gives you an idea of how the quilting looks over the entire back.
 I love the pop of yellow binding against the muslin back...
and against the green front of the quilt too. Every one of those big flowers is very wonky, but I'm still pleased with how it all looks.
Now to just get it delivered to the bride and groom (who have been married over a week now).

This is my first finish from my Finish-a-Long list for this quarter. In celebration, I'll be linking this post everywhere I can think of! Check out the page at the top of the blog for some of my usual link-ups.

  1. Congratulations! I looks great and I really like your choice of binding. The view of the quilting from the back shows it off nicely, but I am pretty sure I can see it from the front in the first photo, too!

  9. You finished it a week after the wedding? I'm super impressed. I try to get the wedding quilt done by the couple's first anniversary but that doesn't always happen. I love the quilting! www.quiltartbymegan.com
