The Wedding Quilt

While my son and his fiancĂ© were planning their wedding, I decided that it was time to start their wedding quilt.  I asked them to pick out the pattern.  After searching the internet, they picked the Bali Wedding Star Pattern by Quiltworx.

We went to my wonderful local quilt shop, Quilt Trends, and picked out fabric. Then the fun began.  Paper piecing a queen size quilt is not a quick project!  I spent a weekend retreat sewing the rings.

I spent another weekend sewing the stars. 

It took a few additional months to put it together, and to quilt it on George.  Finally, the quilt is finished. 

The work was definitely worth it.  They loved their wedding quilt!
