A Wedding Quilt

 I love it when I finally get going on a quilt ... this one, however, is very very late!  It is a quilt to celebrate my brother and his wife's wedding ... it was in October 2010!  so they have celebrated their first wedding anniversary now - without a quilt.

This quilt became more concrete over the weekend .. it is now in one piece and waiting for the borders to be attached.   This quilt will be KING SIZE - whew ... a lot of sewing and a lot of fabric.   All beautiful green batik fabric.   The borders (two) will also be green batik ... my brother wanted a green quilt.   Hopefully I will get this to him and his wife before Christmas.

I have used the pattern Peppermint Twist for this quilt - just made it a lot bigger.    I can rename it Tasmanian Twist (I do like that name!)   Don't you just love how the secondary pattern appears ... just magic.

Happy quilting for now ... Jane x
