Wedding Quilt Update

IMG_1264These are the last 60 spiral blocks for the famous wedding quilt. These will make the main border. There are also two narrow borders, which I have yet to cut, but that will be quick and easy with my die cutter.

So next up will be some assembly. First I’ll use these blocks to make the borders. Then I’ll sew together the nine Grand Blocks:

A couple of weeks ago, I asked The Bride which of two Stonehenge backings she liked best for the back of her quilt. Last weekend, I asked The Groom. No marriage counseling necessary on that question.

Here were their options (note: the colors look a bit more intense here than in real life):

And that is the Wedding Quilt Update!

Quilt on!

    Yes, you can get it done by Monday! I was wondering if you were going to use wide backing. Question answered.
