The wedding quilt is done!

I have been working on this quilt on and off for about 4 years. And finally it got done and giving to the wonderful couple. Some of my friends in Germany helped make the friendship blocks, in purple and green and blue. The attendees at the wedding signed good wishes on the blocks , and I assembled the top .  I  found the perfect border fabric at the quilt shop on Vashon island. I quilted it with loops to represent the blending of the couple , who both have been married previously and have children from these marriages and to avoid quilting on the writing and coloring.

                       The quilt is 98 inches by 98 inches,
                                                       big enough ( still ) to cover the family.
