Mary and Eddie's Wedding Quilt

I can finally share this beautiful quilt that I made with my friend Ellen, for her daughter.

Our daughters have been friends since they were 8 years old.
I have watched Mary grow up.
Her mom is one of my very best friends.

Mary and Eddie got married in August of 2015.  
I was so swamped that I was not sure I would be able to make a quilt.
So I suggested to my friend that she help me.

The result was this gorgeous Round and Round Quilt.
I am linking it up to Finish It Up Friday over at Crazy Mom Quilts

Pattern is by Thimbleblossoms
(You can purchase your own copy at my friend's shop here)

Quilting by Kathy Koch.


My favorite block includes Sebastian the cat!








Instead of a guest book at the wedding reception, 
I had 3 12" framed in squares for people to write their well wishes for the happy couple. 
 I mounted the squares on cardboard and I harassed  asked people to sign. 
 I believe I got almost everyone! 
 I then incorporated them into the back of the quilt.
This took some mad math skills (haha)


The last space that looks empty actually has the hand embroidered label in it. 
 I used a light lavender thread so it doesn't show up very well in this photo.



You can also see Kathy's amazing quilting up close in this photo. 
 I used Zen Gray a Moda fabric for the front background fabric. 
 I am totally smmitten with this gray. 

 My friend, Crazy Quilt Girl, also carries this in her shop if you want to try it too. 
(Although I don't see it listed at the moment, check back!)

I am so thrilled to say that we gifted this to Mary and Eddie last night and they were so happy!

I can't wait to see a photo of it on their bed!

Congratulations Mary and Eddie.  We love you both!

That turned out really pretty. Weird how gray can really shine as a colour.

Love the colours in this - very subtle but just right :)

What a lovely quilt! I really like the colors. Especially the pop of light purple. Perfect.

Hi, it's Marilyn Emmons, I purchased the panels from you 11/6. I somehow got the wrong address on paypal and have received confirmation the package has been returned to you. I don't know how to fix this and totally still want the fabric. Please reship the pkg to 1840 S 28th St. Terre Haute IN 47803. Bill the shipping to paypal again, I'll pay promptly. Thanks, and sorry to be a nuisance. Love the wedding quilt!
