wedding quilt gift finished

So only after 4 years - I have a wedding quilt ready to gift!!
YAY, me!
It's a big one!, and I love it.  It will be hard to gift, that's for sure.
I gave the wedding couple the choice of colors, and design.  
They chose the Ohio Star (like the one I'd made for the groom's sister's wedding quilt), but I didn't hear their color decision for a couple of years.
Then I took my time making it -
so now, for their fourth anniversary,
it's a finish!
I used fabrics from my stash, mainly from the lines of 
Kathy Schmidt - Piecemakers,
Laundry Basket Quilts - Snow Bird, and
Minick & Simpson - Lexington

The pattern I used is from an older book -
40 Fabulous Quick Cut Quilts by Evelyn Sloppy.
It's a great book, and well worth the original price.
Now it's available (through Amazon and others) for ridiculously low prices.
I've used many patterns over and over from this book, and
each has been a wonderful finish.
Definitely worth adding to your library!


  1. Absolutely beautiful! I'd say that was definitely worth the wait. Seems like that is all I did this summer is make wedding quilts. None hold a candle to this beauty!

  2. Been there, done that! I'm still working on my sisters 25th wedding anniversary quilt and I think they just celebrated 32 years! It's beautiful and they will be delighted!

  3. What a wonderful gift! I'm sure they'll treasure it forever.

  4. A good ending. I hope they have a long marriage and get much use from the quilt.


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit!
