Here are some links to a wedding quilt I just finished for a friend... a far cry from my last very traditional, cottage-y quilt.  It's based on someone else's brilliant design.  I ended up tying this one instead of handquilting it as planned, because the wedding is fast approaching, and I was making slooooooow progress.  I'm so relieved it's finally done!

It looks quite wrinkly, especially at the edges, because I hung it on the clothesline after washing it and haven't pressed it yet.  So impatient.

What a lovely gift!
I think the quilt looks old fashioned and modern at the same time: the squares are contemporary but the fabric looks like something from little house on the prairie.

I dig this style of quilt.  Even though I'm usually into the more traditional style,there is something about this type of design that speaks to me.  great work!  I'm sure your friends will love it!
