Wedding Quilt for Jen and Sue

A few months ago, I purchased a kit which was on sale from Craftsy.  I didn't think I'd want to make the quilt, but the fabric was V & Co's Ombre so I went ahead and purchased the kit.  I figured I could use the fabric for another quilt.  In the end though, I decided to go ahead and use the pattern that came with the kit.

And while I was finishing it, two friends of ours announced they are getting married!  After 20 years of living together, they finally decided to tie the knot!  I couldn't be happier for them and knew they would get this quilt as a wedding gift.



I love the fading effect of this design and that pink binding is just so pretty!!!



For the quilting, I tried some random square loops and I love it!  The texture is great and it was pretty easy and fast to quilt.



The finished size is 64" x 80" before washing.  I know it'll shrink a bit in the wash, but it'll be a really nice size to cuddle on the couch with.  I sure hope they like it!

This is project number 7 on my Q2 FAL list and my last finish of the quarter so I managed to get 6 out of 7 projects completed.


I will also link this finish up at Crazy Mom Quilts and at Celtic Thistle Stitches for TGIFF.
