Wedding Quilt Finished!

This custom quilt was a joy to complete from start to finish. Although paper piecing is not my first choice for constructing a full-size quilt, this quilt pattern needed the precision that paper piecing provides.

I loved the fabrics and this quilt pattern works well with the fabrics chosen. Marie of Blueberry Hill Quilts in Chestermere, Alberta, did a beautiful job on the quilting (as always!) and selected a paisley floral pattern that is just stunning on the completed quilt.
Looks great on my wall - maybe I should make one for me?
Someone will need to remind me to take pictures of the FINISHED quilt - the pictures I took were before the binding was sewn down and I packed the quilt up and forgot to rehang it and take some pictures before packing it up.

PS
Here's the link to the paper-piecing pattern I used - you'll need 4 copies per 12" block https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B4MjyMjAVv_XZTJPUFFTT1ZScnV4Z3FMb3dzOVFlZw
