A wedding quilt for Benjamin and Tanya

I finished Benjamin and Tanya's wedding quilt! I was inspired by Denyse Schmidt's amazing design called Run and Fall. I wanted the design to evoke coming together (hence the converging lines), growing (I used green and yellows to suggest a vine, or a bunch of flowers), and home (the design suggests an urban skyline - they live in NYC). I hand-stitched the applique and then machine quilted the whole thing in zig-zagging lines - it took about two months from start to finish (although the design process took a little longer).
