The Wedding Quilt

I finally get to share the wedding quilt with all of you!!  
I asked the bride and groom to please give me some ideas for quilts they liked 
and that I told them I would choose from those.  
I chose the pattern Minimal Triangles.  
It was not really difficult but I was making a HUGE quilt so there were a LOT of triangles.  
The size I wanted to make was not a listed size so I was not really sure how many I needed.  
At my retreat in July, everyone kept asking me.  
Finally my sweet SIL figured it out 
(although that number ended up not being right either).  
I ended up using 600 triangle units!  
The chosen colors were gray and white. 
 I put a few pops of aqua in to break it up.  
It was a little boring to make so many of the same thing in the same colors.  
The pattern is a good one but 
she doesn't really tell you how to line up the rows so that the ends work out right.  
You add a white one on each end and then cut them once the entire top is put together.  
I ended up taking 2 rows apart and re-sewing them but that was not too bad.  
So without further ado, here are some photos!

It turned out to be 100" X 112"

My friend, Liz, did the quilting.  I had Celtic knots done and I love how the quilting came out!

I hand embroidered this label on the back.
(I used some sparkly thread too)

I was tickled to find this border fabric.
It is light gray triangles with a few teal ones on the charcoal background.

They opened it after the rehearsal party was done.

BOTH of them wanted it on their bed so the next day I put it on the bed.
It looks great with the pillow covers I made for the shower.

It seems to be Mitch approved too.

It is truly a labor of LOVE, Pam; well done! You're right-- it's BIG!! I love this and the fact that you embroidered the label on the back-- perfectly placed over a large dot. ;) Best wishes to the happy newlyweds! said...

Oh, my goodness, Pam! You must have sewn forever and a day! Big rewards in the end, though! The look very pleased. What a handsome couple!
