A wedding quilt

I am finally going to share this wedding quilt that I made a couple weeks ago. It is simple, came together quickly, and I might as well tell you, I barely got any pictures of it before I wrapped it up and sent it off. Hopefully it has arrived already at it's new home.

This was one of those things where it was hard to figure out what kind of quilt this couple might like. I don't know them very well; in fact one is my husband's cousin who lives across the country and I've met a couple times and the other I have never met. Still, I went off the impression I got and decided that low key and not so 'quilty' was the way to go. I ended up with this large gingham pattern made from 3 kona solids: charcoal, ash, and white. I saw it initially here and it was easy enough to figure out. I went with 5" squares to start with and the quilt finishes somewhere around 63x72 which should be perfect for snuggles. I backed it with a really cute little farm flannel that I found and bound it in kona curry.  These are the few pictures I snapped on my way to wash it and sadly that is all I got.

I am so in love with how this came out, it was hard to send it away. I really hope they like it and will get a lot of use out of it. Sometimes it is so hard to give a quilty gift!
