Friday finish -- Kevin and Gretchen

The cobbler's children finally have shoes!!! My son's wedding quilt, only thirteen months late, is finished!

I pieced all of the blocks and sashings right after the wedding and the quilt sat borderless for about a year. I finished the piecing in time for their first anniversary, but the quilting, binding, and pillowcases added another month to the project.

Besides, I lent a quilt to the happy couple "just until the wedding quilt is done" and they were getting far too attached to my quilt!

Check out some other great finishes at

(* edit: I forgot to add the pattern information. You can find it here.)

Very nice - is that ribbon candy I see in the sashing???? You need to write a book about how you do that! I want to learn how to do that!

Debby the quilt is gorgeous! To John, it takes a computerized system or a TON of practice.
