This Week's Finish : A Wedding Quilt

 Ginny's oldest son is getting married this weekend, and she has been piecing this quilt all summer for a gift. 

She chose the 
Just Can't Cut It 
quilt pattern by 
All Washed Up, 
which suggests 
finding a 
large focal print 
and build 
around it. 

  This quilt is huge, 95" by 110"!
 We went to M&L Fabrics, and Ginny chose colors from Natalie's fall choices. I think she did a great job.
 I just pulled it off the frame Friday pm, and put the binding on over the weekend.
 What? Doesn't everyone have a Nutella jar on their sewing machine desk?!? lol!
 I did a scroll quilt design, free motion, and made a freestyle heart in each of the rust/red blocks.

BTW, Happy Cottage Quilter Jocelyn 
had a great finish on this same pattern, go see it here.  

I just pulled it off the frame Friday pm, and put the binding on over the weekend. 

Happy Wedding Day, Paul and Natalie!
