    Here is the finnished wedding quilt. 10x10 feet It machine washed and machine dried up beautifully.

    The bride and groom loved it. They did! Her mother is a quilter too and both DS and daughter in love appreciate quilts. I pressented the quilt to them at the reception and have pictures of them in their wedding clothes wrapped in the quilt. They were both emotional about it. I did not expect that and am touched by their response. They actually took it on their 2 night honeymoon. That was the best compliment.

    In the mean time I am so happy to go on to a smaller project. Thank you all for your input and encouragement. It was a life line and of tremendous help.

    This is a simple design by me, using shoe fly blocks set on point, and is made with mostly Judie Rothermel Civil War tribute fabrics. The free motion quilting was done on a Janome 6500.

    The quilt is not laying all the way flat in the picture but in real life it is. Yeahhh!

    And I now have a married child. A new chapter in my life.

    Heart label.

    That is beautiful. I am partial to civil war fabrics. Your colors are fabulous. I'll bet you are glad to get that one finished, must have been quite a challange to quilt. Congrats to the bride and groom.

    Awesome job. I can't believe you did that all on a regular machine. I get overwhelmed just thinking about trying something like that.

    It's beautiful, and you did a great job. Shows that it is possible to quilt something big on a regular machine. I have done a king size too. Did you start in the middle and work outwards? What was your strategy?

    That is a lovely quilt, and I like your choice of fabrics too. She and Jo Morton are my favorite repro designers.

    Very nice. Really like the colors. How long did it take to quilt on your machine?
