"Snapshots" Quilt is finished

The quilt I am giving to my cousin for her bridal shower this weekend is finished! Yay! :-)  I really enjoyed making this one and can't wait to give it to her.  I haven't washed it yet so it isn't all crinkly yet, but I figured I would post the pictures while I had a chance, since the next couple days will be pretty busy.   I quilted it with a meandering loopy stitch and used brown thread in the brown blocks and pink thread in the pink blocks.  For the border I quilted it using a figure 8 design with pink thread.  I have never used more than one kind of thread or attempted any designs on the border so that made the quilting part more challenging.  The binding is pieced from the leftover block fabrics.  My mom helped me out tremendously by stitching the binding fabrics together. This was a family project!

Thanks for visiting my blog! I love this quilt too. My daughter wants a chocolate and pink quilt so bad. She'd give her left armpit for this one. Great job!

How sweet that this was a family effort. You all did such a great job and I love the combo binding colors that you and your mom did.

It looks like a nice sized quilt too. I think your friend is really going to enjoy this special gift.
