So my entry this fall is a very special quilt for two very special people.  It's a wedding quilt for my nephew and his beautiful bride!  I knew I wanted something special for them and I wanted it to be a tad bit more modern than traditional.  These two fit together so perfectly that I knew Labyrinth was the quilt for them.  I love how the squares fit inside each other.  Each having their own different aspects and able to stand alone completely but when seen together, they highlight and strengthen each other.  That's just like the happy couple.

And here is their quilt.  This is the first quilt that I used a ruler on, so I went a little crazy, and hey they've  have been known to do that from time to time as well.  I put a different design on each square but tried to keep some things in common through out, the 1/4 in edge with pebble.  A unifying aspect, appropriate for a wedding quilt huh?

So here you go, hope  you enjoy.









And seriously are they not the cutest couple EVER???
