Default My wedding gift to my niece

I've been working all summer to make a wedding quilt for my niece. She said 'YES' in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris so a quilt to commemorate the day was in order. The wedding is less than 2 weeks away and I still have to put the label on the back. But, it's done enough to show now.

The quilt measures 85"x95". My niece wanted it large enough for their queen size bed. I added beads to the tower because she told me when she said 'yes', the tower lit up. Can you see the couple on the bridge? He's on his knee with the ring box in his hand. Yes, there's a glittery bead for the diamond on the ring.

Thanks for looking.
