    Wedding Garden Quilt

    I finished the top and am sending it off to be quilted, as it is quite large 95x103 inches. It will be a bedspread, as I didn't put the long border on the top. The block was a block of the month in our quilt guild a few years back, and was a 15 inch block. I trimmed it down to make a 12 1/2 inch block. Don't know the name of the block, but it is fun to do. I have 35 different floral fabrics in this quilt, and since it is going away as a wedding gift, I plan to make another (not as big) for myself, as I still love collecting floral specialty fabrics and have some left over from this quilt.

    Looks like a beautiful garden. the happy couple will love it.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    beautiful quilt. However I have to wonder why the maker of this pattern didn't use a square in the middle of the white like she did in the middle of the floral, instead of a 4 patch? would have been a lot easier for you. Might want to think about that if you make another one.
