Cookies & Cream top…done! (FINALLY)

I can finally post something! I finally finished the top that is for the quilt for my brother-in-law and his soon-to-be wife’s wedding present. It’s the biggest top I’ve made so far – 88″ x 88″ – and in the pictures is shown on our king-sized bed. Eek! Fortunately, I get to quilt it on a longarm machine, so it should be downhill from here. The binding will be the same blue as the inner border, and the backing is a deep, rich red. Their house is painted in tans, and they have dark wood furniture with red accent pieces. 😀 I chose the colors long before I saw the house…spooky, huh?

It’s not my best piecing job. I rushed it, as I procrastinated putting it together, and it shows. The pieces are either pieced perfectly or they’re up to 1/2″ off. *sigh* Oh well. If it’s used as intended (bed quilt) then it won’t matter, as you won’t see them from a distance. They’re more obvious in the pictures because it’s smoothed out and flattened, rather than bundled up on the bed. 😀 It will be bound in the blue fabric, which looks glowy in the picture but is in reality a beautiful French blue.

Angled view:
