Finished Wedding Quilt for Amanda and Michael

Tomorrow my sister is getting married to her college sweetheart.

When they got engaged in February, my mom and I started scheming about what kind of quilt we should make them. We decided to use the Modern Roses line and that we wanted to make a modern looking churn dash quilt.

My mom made a few 12 inch blocks and 6 inch blocks and came up with a pattern for a 4 inch churn dash inside of a 12 inch block. She sent the fabric bundle to me and I made the remainder of the blocks -- about thirty 12 inch blocks and twenty four 6 inch blocks. When I was at home for Easter my mom and I laid out the entire quilt and she sewed the top together.

My sister has been blessed with a very crafty future mother-in-law who just happens to be an amazing long arm quilter. She happily volunteered to quilt and bind the quilt for us and bring it to the shower back in August.

There isn't a full picture of the quilt top to bottom since these were taken at the shower, but you'll hopefully be able to imagine what the rest of it looks like.

Here's Kay and I holding up the quilt:


Here's the happy couple with their quilt! You can hopefully see some of the quilting in this shot.


Here's the picture of all of us involved in the quilt -- Lori (my mom), myself, my sister, her soon-to-be husband, and his mom Kay.


This all has reminded me that I've never show the quilt that my mom made for us when we got married last year, so I'm going to share that on our first anniversary. :)

And -- hooray! -- we'll be getting this made into a pattern for sale soon!

Linking up with Crazy Mom quilts!
