    Wedding quilt finished plus lil twister baby quilt top

    I finally finished the wedding quilt I have been working on for my great nephew and his future wife who are getting married in August. I call it 'The Road to Love' lol. The hearts sort of meander from both ends to the middle and a couple of love birds are attached above the largest hearts. Knowing them, I am sure they will be happy with anything homemade. They don't know anything about this quilt so it will be a big surprise.

    The other pics are of a lil twister baby quilt I had been working on. One before pic and one after picture with my daughter holding it up for me. I think it turned out pretty well for my first baby quilt made with the lil twister tool. I did make a doll quilt for practice before I started this one. It turned out great too. There are two who are pregnant I have in mind, one a friend and one a niece, but they haven't found out what they are having yet so hopefully at least one of them will be a girl and I will only have one more to make!

    Very nice. I liked seeing the before and after picture for the little twister baby quilt. I have the tool but haven't used it yet.

    So cute!!! You did a great job. I've got the twister tool. Just haven't had time to try it out yet. Hope mine turns out as good as your.
    Be the best that you can be at everything you do.

    Thanks very much. I am going to try to quilt it on the machine following the lines of the pinwheels. I tried in the ditch on the doll quilt and it didn't look good enough to suit me so I went around the darker pinwheels. It really made a difference in the look of it. You might want to keep that in mind when you go to make one. I know it is more quilting but the quilt looks so much better quilted that way. I may quilt at least every other one plus the ends and boarder.
