On the frame, last November. I chose to use a wool batt, because although I usually like the crinkly look you get with cotton batts, I thought it might make it harder to read the hand-written notes. I outlined the 3 white columns, adding a 'swoosh' through each patch to tack it down.
There are echoed leaves in the negative space on the sides of the quilt, and echoed blossoms on the two inner columns. The wool batting really gave this some wonderful texture.
After completing the quilting, draped across the frame.
The completed back of the quilt. It was a little traumatic sending this to the happy couple. I sent it Priority Mail a week ago Tuesday, and it was supposed to arrive by Thursday. Following the tracking, it flew from Seattle to New York on Wednesday, but then got missent to Long Island. It came back to the city on Friday, but it was marked as delivered on Saturday and Emily didn't have it. After several days agonizing, it finally showed up on Tuesday.
Linking to Finish it up Friday on Crazy Mom Quilts, because it's really finally finished!
