    I made a quilt for my DS and his beautiful fiance. She chose the colors and even chose the fabric from a piece I had in my stash. Luckily, I had just bought it and was able to go back and get several yards. We had a wedding shower for them yesterday and I gave them the quilt. They were so excited.

    I was playing on ebay one day and saw this pattern for sale. It was a page out of a magazine and was called Writer's Block...no other info was listed. I tried to win the pattern, but someone else wanted it even more than I did. I played around with the pattern in Excel and this is what I came up with after adding my own border. I don't know what size the squares were in the pattern, but mine are 1 1/2 inches finished and there are 2,365 of them total (green & white). (Thank goodness for strip piecing!) I wish I could give credit to the original designer, but, after hours of searching on the internet, I couldn't find who it was.

    I am so proud of my son and couldn't ask for a better daughter-in-law! I love them both very much!!

    The colors are little off. The green is sort of a two tone pear green color.

    They loved the label almost as much as the quilt

    I love your work. Your DS and DDIL look very happy. My daughter is getting married on June 3d and I haven't started a quilt for them, yet. I will get started this week.

    Thanks. I have another smaller quilt I am doing for them in their wedding colors (red, black and white) that will have several of their pictures on it. It will be displayed at the rehearsal dinner and at the reception. April 23rd will be here before I know it!

    Good luck to your daughter and on getting the quilt done.

    Absolutely gorgeous, the quilt and the couple!! It is a very unique pattern, I really like it. My son is in a serious relationship, so I see a wedding quilt in my future, possibly two years from now when they finish college! :)

    The label is priceless! I can see why they loved it so much. Best wishes to them both and congratulations on your new daughter!
