I made that! Finished Wedding Quilt

Tada!  It's done!

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of gifting my cousin with a throw sized quilt as a wedding shower gift.  Because it was the largest sized quilt I ever made to date, and because of the occasion, I paid particular attention as I made it.  I tried to really enjoy the process as I went, from the choice of fabric all the way to the quilting and binding.

It all started with choosing some fabrics:

2012.01.03 - Planning a new quilt.

Cutting out all the squares:

2013.01.21 - getting ready to sew

Sewing and then trimming the HST’s:


Assembling the HST’s into blocks:

2013.02.02 - wip

And then the blocks into the quilt:


And then basting and binding and voila!

Here’s the back:
