A Finished Quilt

I've been sewing a lot lately and getting a lot of odd sewing things finished. I've been working on this quilt for my sister and new brother in law for awhile. They got married the beginning of June - I almost made it but my sewing machine needed servicing badly and I had to give up. I'm finally finished and it's awaiting delivery later in the summer.

My sister has seen the fabric and pattern, but none of it put together. This is a duvet cover - and it's heavy. It should keep them warm in winter.

I'm very happy with how it's turned out and I'm sure my sister and her husband will love it too.

This is on my queen size bed. Their duvet is 86" x 86"; after consultation with the ladies at Thursday Therapy sewing I made it a bit bigger to account for the height of the duvet. It's about 87.5" x 87.5".

Note to self: you really need something over your bed to liven up that wall.
