    Nephew's and brides wedding quilt

    Its done and in the hands of my almost new niece LOL!!! I designed it myself and copied their wedding invite. The wedding shower was ysterday in Florida and I had mailed it to the brides mom so it would be a surprise.
    Well it sure was and When Jennifer called me she had me in tears she was so happy. And I was worried. LOL!!!
    The picture isn't very good the colors are grey and yellow. will post when i get one from her later this week. hers will probably be a better one.
    Ryan is like our 3rd son.

    I love how you incorporated their invitation, from the colors to the design. I would be crying too! Great job!

    believe me I worked my butt off. I searched facebook for the brides mom . Thank heavens I found her. Found out when the bridal shower was. and got the quilt finished and mailed out in 4 weeks.
    The plan was I ws suppose to make one for the guests to sign. Well, when she called she asked if I would be upset if she had NO ONE sign it. She just loves it and she wants to put it up on display in the home they just bought. And to be honest i was really glad she didn't want to have people write on it

    Great job. They will treasure it. I really like the colors and that they match the invitation so well. Funny how we stress so much, just to figure out later that it wasn't necessary. I guess it's just a human way to make sure we do well.....and so you have!

    This is beautiful... just beautiful! And it matches perfectly with their wedding theme! No wonder your "soon-to-be niece" was so excited... I would be, too! Great job!

    Love your idea using the invitation as a center in the big block. Great colors also.

    Your quilt is beautiful, but the thoughts behind it are equally as beautiful! Clearly this couple has a whole lot of love backing them up.
