So I decided I wanted to make a quilt for my brother's wedding present, luckily I decided on that pretty early.  It took me quite a few months to finish, but I finished up the binding at 1am the day of the wedding. Smiley

SO PRETTY! I love browns and blues together. And man, it's just lovely. (I love how it's traditional and yet more modern at the same time.) I'm totally Wisting this. Great job!  Grin

Thanks so much everyone!!  I had alot of great advice from some great quilters.  I think I did the majority of the quilting, but I also had lots of help from some friends, which was probably the best part of the whole thing.  Nothing beats sitting around a quilt and engaging in some girl talk, at least in my opinion anyways.
