    Wedding Quilt for my Boss

    This was a modern style quilt I designed and made for my boss and his wife. They were married on 5/19/12. The blocks represent that date and the quilting ... 'the big moon' was because their last name is Moon. It was done in their wedding colors. Fun to make. Well received. The Mrs loved the idea of the date being represented in the design.

    What a clean, subtle look! I'm not normally into modern quilts but I love, love, love this one! And the thought that went into it is so cool! No wonder your boss & the little woman loved it! Great job!!!

    What a nice idea and what a neat design - very custom-made just for two special people in your life -they'll enjoy that for years to come.

    Very cool!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Your border is excellent. Great colors and it could be a good scrappy too. Thanks for the border idea
