Wedding quilt

We've been to Auckland to celebrate our nephew's wedding.
A bit late in the piece, I decided I wanted to make them a wedding quilt. Shared the fabrics with you a few weeks ago - a tight deadline but I made it.
Including a homemade card
with appropriate words inside
I am always amazed to see how the quilt changes through the different processes. This block shows the difference of part just basted down (I used 505 basting spray) and the other part appliqued

Also enjoy the difference from basted top
to finished article
You can see more in the detail shots

And a few more quilting close-ups on blocks
I really had fun with the quilting
This is my take on a design by Donna Ward - check it out here if you want to make your own variation.
Wishing the lovely couple every happiness for their future together
