The wedding quilt is finished. Wednesday night I put the last stitches in the binding. I was going to snap a few pictures of the quilt on the couch when our beagle puppy, Ruby, started whining like crazy. Right now we still have a gate between the kitchen and living room as we don’t trust Ruby on the carpet yet. Ruby was in the kitchen and I was in the living room. That’s when I decided it was time for Ruby to “earn her keep”.
Now, if you are wondering about the quilt. It’s a Maverick Star block. I have made a quilt exactly like this a few years ago. It’s been a favorite at the house. When I asked our daughter Kayla, who is getting married in 8 days, what quilt she wanted me to make for a wedding gift, she said do you mind making one just like our favorite quilt. Well at the time I didn’t know which was their favorite but said sure. I was really relieved to see they picked this quilt.
Kelli was real helpful in getting this together so quickly. She cut most of the neutral pieces out and sewed quite a few of the start points.
Here’s Gracie posing on the original quilt…and here’s the link to the blog post that tells more about it.
After all that work, Ruby got a little spoiled and then I let her sleep in the old gross office chair.
