Finished Wedding Quilt

kaplan wedding quilt It’s done and I am beyond excited.  What do you think?

The top is somehow a good blend of all six colors.  The colors seem to have the same tone, nothing is too bright.

Basting the quilt was a real challenge too.  Took most of my living room floor.  Yes, that’s football in the background.  Jets/Bears game that Brittany and Dave were at.

The backing fabric are selections by my husband.  He went to Jo-Anns all by himself and picked them out.  I was almost blinded by all the Hello Kitty as I pieced the back.  kaplan wedding quiltThis may be the most pink I have used in a while.  Brittany will love it.  Dave may never turn the quilt over.  Hope the couple enjoys many snuggles under the quilt as their first wedding anniversary approaches.

Today I dropped the quilt at the post office.  It’s making it’s journey to New Jersey.  There are a couple of extras in the quilt.  I will share those later.
