The last stitch done...

By the time you read this I should be dancing the night away at a family wedding celebrating with the happy couple on their marriage.  I've made them this quilt which is a scrappy Chinese coin quilt.  I wanted a design that I could incorporate different fabrics that have featured in some the quilts that have been made for other family members.  For instances, the duck fabric you can see in the close up is fabric my MIL gave me, the blue fabric two rows over is in my nephews quilt.  I really hope they like it.





Until next time...
