    Default Wedding gift for my best friend! SOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!!!!

    My best friend for my entire life, and I do mean entire life! We met when we were 4 months old, and we are almost 40 now! She's getting married in late July. I've been working on this quilt for awhile and I finally finished quilting it today. I started picking out fabrics back in October! It's been a labor of love and I'm so happy! She and her fiance have NO idea I'm even making them a quilt, so I hope they love it as much as I do!!!! All that's left is to bind it. I quilted it at a local long-arm rental studio. It took me 7 hours. It was worth every second!

    TA DAAAAA!!!!

    Beautiful Quilt! I'm sure this will be cherished forever. I love the colors and prints you used. Very sophisticated with the wow factor of the bright colors worked in. I'm certainly keeping this in mind for a future quilt on my list. Thanks for sharing your labor of love.
