Two of two...DONE!

Ah ha! The second wedding quilt for the summer is finished! I thought about doing a "scrappy" binding, but I'm really glad I went with the red. I have a triangle pantograph quilted on the front in gray thread, and the back is in red thread. It's even ahead of schedule! Their wedding is September 17th.

I picked this kind of eye confusing backing because they have cats. A black one and a red and orange one. Hopefully the colors and patterns will hide the cat hair! :)

One down, one more to go!

Well, I did it. One wedding quilt down and one more to go! I finished Storybook Farm (the name of the collection of blocks) late Thursday night before I had to leave Friday morning for the wedding rehearsal! My fiance Scott is holding up the finished product! I forgot to take pictures of the back though. I used some wedding word fabric for the sleeves! Everyone at the rehearsal dinner loved it! Especially the quilting ladies in the crowd! :)

This block of the horse and the rooster is my favorite!

On this block I put a clothesline on there with some clothes and a teeny tiny quilt! :) It's even 3D!

Pretty cute, eh?

What are your thoughts? It was my first McKenna Ryan and I had it quilted at the quilt shop rather than doing it myself around each piece.
