    This is a quilt I made for my DH's favorite neice's wedding. I started last November before my shoulder surgery and finished in January '11. Today we finally get to give the newlyweds their quilt. Her wedding colours were black/white/cream, which I didn't know at the time, as they got married in Costa Rica in January, so, I guess it was just luck I decided on these colours. The pattern is just various star blocks I got off the internet and then I used Eleanor Burn's Starry Nights sashing using the stars. I don't know what the colour scheme for her bedroom is, so, I really hope she likes it. For the label, I scanned the wedding invitation into my computer and then printed it on fabric using freezer paper.

    It looks fantastic, and should go with any color she has in her bedroom I think.

    You did a great job on that quilt and I love the idea of scanning the wedding announcement as the label.
