A special wedding gift!

I just finished and photographed my Metro Lattice quilt from Sew Kind of Wonderful. This quilt is going to be a wedding quilt for my nephew who is getting married next weekend.

They are in their early 20's and so I wanted to find something with a cooler vibe for them. I thought this was appropriate since it is a new twist on the Double Wedding Ring.

I found out that the bride's favorite color is purple so I went with my favorite Joel Dewberry line so far, Bungalow. Mixed it with a kona purple (I don't remember which one!) and a kona snow and voila!!

My feet as I try to get high enough to take the photo!!
My lovely friend Denise had me over to her place to long arm this quilt. I'm so addicted to long arming, I love how fast it is and the great results. Here are some shots of the quilting I chose. I love the secondary pattern that looks like a heart.

I have to say, I love how this pattern came together. This is my second quilt with the Quick Curve Ruler and I love the detail they put into their pattern writing. Everything is clear and easy to follow and leads to such impressive results (in my option).

I went with the blue color on the front for the backing. I found this print from ModKid at Joann's and I loved it so much I did the entire back in it with my label pieced within.

And the binding is one of my favorite prints from Bungalow. Cut on the bias it makes a really fun binding.

I hope the newlyweds love it as much as I do! I'm having a hard time parting with it!
