    I've been working this week on finishing the wedding gift for my cousin's wedding, which was April 12th. I finished the piecing yesterday & today sandwiched & spraybasted. I will start on the quilting sometime this week. Thank goodness she doesn't know I'm making this so she will be surprised no matter how "late" I am getting it finished & to her!

    **Note: In person the colors do not have the tonal variances that are showing up in the pictures.

    That's beautiful--my favorite colors.

    How are you going to quilt it? I just finished the same top and I'm staring at it wondering how to quilt it. Please share your quilting ideas--thanks!

    I'n not sure yet how I am going to quilt it. I am limited in what I can do (haven't learned FMQ - yet!). I'm sketching out a couple of ideas. I'll be sure to share them with you. Have you had any ideas for yours?

    The colors were chosen to represent the couples favorite colors. Hers: teal. His: green. The center print is a combination of all of the colors. I use it to represent the couple - with 2 lives now becoming 1 entertwined with parts of each other.

    I have a 2nd one that I will be starting next week. My nephew's wedding is the 30th. Their colors are - Him: black & grey. Her: blue & green. Theirs is definitely going to "pop" a lot more that my cousin's. She likes muted, mellow...so hers turned out perfect.

    I can't FMQ at all!! I think that's why I'm not sure what to do here. Do you think all straight stitching would be boring? I was thinking of making some chains in the largest outer strips of each block (those I can draw and just straight sew on them). I'm going to go stare some more and wait to see what you come up with LOL.
