This is (was?) a gift  for my friends' wedding.  I stood up as the "best man" in the wedding; I had been friends with both of them, introduced them, and hounded Jo until she agreed to go out with Brian.  They actually fought over who I would stand up with!  (That's just a fun story for me, but the point of this post is the quilt!!)

here it is before the final borders.



Here it is finished!


Close up of quilting and fabrics-- I made the binding out of leftover blocks and fabric.  The quilt was machine pieced and quilted, but at over 280 pieces, it was a LOT of work! 


The pattern came from a book, but I added the block border between the black outside border and swirly inside border, and I used four leftover stack/whack blocks for the corners.

Thanks for looking.  Smiley

Thanks all!  It was very painful to give this one away....

The pattern came from Cut Loose Quilts by Jan Mullen.

AMAZING!  I love it.  I've thought of doing a quilt in only black and white, but I was never sure how it would turn out.  Your quilt looks so great I might have to try it. 

Thanks for sharing this!

That is beautiful!  What a lucky couple, to have a great friend introduce them, stand up at the wedding & then to make this!  I'm sure it will be extremely treasured. Cheesy
