Kathryn's Quilt

Five or six years ago, when my daughter Kathryn was about 14 years old, we took a block of the month club class together. We each made the block for that month and then tucked them away and forgot about them. She got engaged in September and I decided it was time to do a wedding quilt for her. I combined our blocks minus two months worth that just didn't fit in and made her this quilt. Half the blocks were sewn by her and I hired someone to do the overall quilting. I really like how it turned out considering the selection of blocks and the fact that 6 years later you cannot find any of the fabric we originally used. It is huge. Turned out to be 98 x 120 inches! If you look closely, I picked a quilting pattern with very subtle hearts here and there. I gave it to her at her bridal shower. I hope she loves it!
