Wedding Quilt For Amy and Grant

I am posting about a quilt I finished quite a long time ago.  
It has a long convoluted story but I am not going to go into that right now.  
Instead I am going to talk about how happy I was to be able to gift this quilt to a very special, young couple that got married last January.  

Amy has been a friend of my middle daughter's since they were both 5 years old.  
They were besties for many years and when they talk it's like things pick right up where they left off.  I think most of us have friends like that right? 
She spent so much time at our house she is like another daughter to us!

 Anyway, I designed this quilt for their wedding.  Without further ado I will just share the photos.

This quilt may look like some others but I assure you it was completely designed by me using EQ7.  Kathy Koch did the amazing quilting.




This is the quilt on their bed.


I love how the colors look in this photo here on the bed.


A quick shot of the label


The quilt was fairly large so I ended up having to piece the back.  I could not be happier with how amazing the back turned out!



Of course you can see Kathy's amazing quilting on the back too. 


Here is a photo of Amy and Grant from their wedding.

This is an oldie but a goodie of Amy and my daughter up north at Hardy Dam.
They both look so young to me here!  


I hope you have enjoyed the quilt and the story too.  
I am linking up to Finish it up Friday over at Crazy Mom Quilts.

Have a great weekend and happy sewing!

This is such a wonderful quilt! I love the movement created by the colors on the front, and the back is so beautiful it could be the main quilt! What a great gift!
