My husband and I were married on October 22 and I made us this wedding quilt.  The fabrics are all autumn themed and lots of leaves motifs.  I did this large scale quilt so that I could showcase these great prints.  I got it long-armed quilted and there's this great leafy style stitching in the brown blocks.  I displayed this at the wedding too and it was photographed by my photographer but I haven't gotten her photos back yet.  The back is a random piecing of the scraps with the great autumn fairy panels in the center.  Am I missing any essential info?  Thanks for looking Smiley

That's beautiful! I love it! Pinning now.

Ps- I see in the message under your pic that you did the California bar exam. Congrats! I know someone trying to pass it now. Scary hard.

Beautiful quilt - you are very talented - I love your color choices.  And I especially love the back - I really like interesting backs of quilts almost as much as the fronts.

Absolutely beautiful! Your fabric choices were just fantastic. I love the use of brown here -- it feels so warm!

Thank you!  It's extra a very subtle plaid brown but it looks solid in the photos.
