    Wedding quilt

    I have been working on this quilt for one of my grandsons wedding taking place this month. I started it last June, then had rotator cuff surgery in August.i was so worried I wouldn't get it done as the recovery takes long. Finally in February I was able to get it finished. It is a log cabin in the barn raising setting made from scraps ( I still have way to many). They are getting married in a barn so I though the setting was appropriate. It measures 105 x105. Biggest one I've ever done. Oh I also quilted it myself on my longarm. Hope you like it and thanks for looking.

    Very pretty. It would be great if your quilt was part of the decor for the wedding.

    simply stunning, I made one in a similar color scheme. I just love your quilting too. excellent job.
    great theme of the barn. I love that.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
