    This is a wedding quilt I made. I thought I would make the lap/wall hanging size but didn't realize that it made it a postage stamp quilt, :lol: So, some of the finished pieces were 1/2" x 1" and was a pain to press the seams on those but I love the finished product...but my next Bargello will be a full size. :-D

    Before I added borders.

    The "picture frame" applique on the back to show the quilting tag, a copy of the wedding invitation and two photos: one of the couple in sepia and one of their hands with the wedding bands in black and white.

    Very very nice! I love this pattern. I will deffinately check it out now that I've seen one done. I made my youngest daughter a double wedding ring quilt for wedding gift. It had a pic of her and another pic of her husband when they wer about 4-5 years old. I also embroideried their names and wedding date on it. I forgot to mention I used her great-grandmothers fabrics in the quilt. It turned out great but I didn't realize the fabrics might not hold up so she uses it as a wall hanging. I'll try and get a pic of this quilt on someday to share with you all. Sorry so long. LOL in Christ, Carmen.

    Thanks everyone! I loved this quilt because the colors harmonize so well together and his favorite color is green and hers is blue and they harmonize so well together too! They should be getting it in the mail tomorrow. I'm anxiously waiting to see what they all say about it. Now, I'm going to try making a larger one of these for myself, lol.
