Joe and Sarah's Wedding Quilt

I just completed the quilt for my son Joe and his bride Sarah.  They married this summer but sometimes it takes a while to get the present completed.
 Some of these pictures were taken inside and some outside.  Hence, the different coloring.

Here is a link to the first post I did on this quilt a few months back.

 And another link to the next post I did on this quilt.

These trapunto vines do not show up as well as I would have liked.  I decided for thin trapunto the quilting should be much finer.  Echo quilting doesn't do.

 I'm glad I got the pictures when there was snow.  This quilt goes well with snow.

  This quilt had many problems while I was quilting it.  I didn't stabilize it properly and did the center point before the sides.  Oh how that made me nervous.  But when I took it off the quilt looked great.  What a relief.
