Wedding quilt - finished!

The quilt for my brother and his bride is finished.  None too soon.... the wedding is Saturday!

I had wanted to work on a quilt using Gee's Bend Quilts as inspiration.  I like the improvisation look of the quilts made by these incredible women. 

The crosses are not quilted, so I am hoping that after it is washed that they will stand out more.  The other thing I must tell the wedding couple - use this quilt.  Quilts are made to be used and loved.  I will be sadly disappointed if after a few years it doesn't show signs of wear.  Fading and frayed edges tell me that is was not folded carefully and stored in a drawer.  It's ok for the cats to sleep on it.
