  3. Wedding quilt finally finished!

    After 1 1/2 years, I finally finished the wedding quilt for my son and DIL. It is machine pieced and hand quilted. I have named it Dresden Garden since it is a combination of Dresden Plate and Garden Path. This was my first attempt at a lap quilt ( each square is quilted, then the squares are sewn together). This method worked very well since I don't have enough floor space to lay out a queen size quilt. They will be getting it at the end of the month. Hope they like it!
