Default My bf at work got married yesterday - here is the quilt and the happy couple!

Salomon is my BMF (best male friend) aside from my husband and he and his BFF Ruby were married yesterday. It was a lovely ceremony and day. Salomon and I work with exceptional students at Santa Monica High School. last year while in the community we were at the thrift store and I found some quilting books. Salomon and Ruby had just started planning their wedding so I had him pick a pattern out of one of the books I bought and asked what colors he wanted - the pattern is called "Ice Crystal" and is made with all 1/2 square triangles and I used sheets of paper that I photocopied out of the book - similar to Triangles on A Roll. I personal feel this is one of the nicest quilts I have every made.

It is really lovely. I love the color choice and what a great gift for the newly weds. They will always think of you when they see this quilt.
