Quilt Wars

Long, long ago in a state not so far away, a lovely young couple got married.  As usual, I planned to make a quilt and, as usual, I didn't finish it in time for the wedding.  Or later that month.  Or later that year.

NINETEEN MONTHS LATER, I bring you "wedding quilt for Alexis and Vinny":

The fabric is S'mores from Moda. I made a quilt for myself from this fabric several years ago and Alexis tried to steal it from me.  I scrounged around the internet to find fabric to make her wedding quilt, and this was even before she was engaged.

The happy couple is still happy and they are now happy with their quilt.

Gorgeous! And they're not just a happy, but a lucky couple too! You mailed this quilt, right? Don't you miss the look on their faces when they open the package?
