Wedding quilt almost finished

These blocks have now become a bed-size quilt! (see 2nd photo)

The blocks are scrappy and feature fabrics which remind me of summer in a mountain meadow....Andrew and Mary met in the Tetons two summers ago.

I got it back Sunday from my friend Darlene, who has "Sew Graceful Quilting", a long arm quilting service. She does beautiful work! I asked her to quilt it loosely and she did....fluidly and loosely, looping feathery shapes in a meandering pattern.

I still have to sew the bright blue binding on it and send it to the kids....their wedding is coming up! August 11th!
Bright blue for the binding, will pick up the center of each block which is a 4-patch of various blues and white.
