Amy and Matt's Wedding Quilt

I finished it!!!!!!  The wedding is tomorrow and the quilt is finished! 
 I could not be more excited.  
I am hoping that Amy doesn't look at this post until after she sees the quilt in real life. 
 The photos do not do it justice!  
I may try to get some additional pictures in the snow later today.  
My friend was so kind to take these with her amazing camera.  
We can hang the quilts in a great place at work, but then we walk around to the other side of the walkway and it is a long distance to shoot from.


The pattern is called Round and Round and it is by Thimble Blossoms.  
I used my beloved Pearl Bracelets for the background AND for the back.  
This caused me a lot of anxiety because it used so much! 
 My friend at Crazy Quilt Girl Fabric Shop assures me she has more,
If you need it too.
Deep Breaths.  I must really love this girl!


The quilting was done by Kathy Koch of Thread Bear Quilting and I love it!


I embroidered the label and found the perfect fabric for framing it in.  
See that gray fabric? 
 It says
Made with (heart) love


In this photo you can see that we are quite far away from the actual quilt.  
This is before I cropped the photo.


I can not wait to celebrate the marriage of Amy and Matt tomorrow. 

 It will be bittersweet for Amy as she lost her mom in October to Ovarian cancer.  
Please pray for a beautiful day for these two great people as they begin their life together.
We love you both and wish you every happiness!!!
