Quilt 142 - Jen and Tim's quilt

45 x 55, 2009

I made this quilt as a wedding present for a friend of mine. She was having a luau themed wedding, so when I ran across these fabrics in Mom's stash, I thought they would be perfect. Hopefully it will be the perfect size for a picnic or to cuddle with on the couch. Mom kept the quilting simple, just outlining the purple flowers in the border and outlining the squares. We used the border fabric for the back and the binding, too.
Those of you who know us will be happy to hear that we didn't even have to finish the binding on the way to the wedding! It was done last night!
We hope you are all enjoying your weekend! In a few hours it will be cool enough to get back to the garden!
