Emily and John's Quilt

My sister, Eva and I finally had a chance to deliver my niece's wedding quilt and have a lovely coffee visit with her in her new home.  This is the first quilt I tried using all solids.  The pattern is "City Circle"  from the book, "City Quilts" by Cherri House.  Eva picked out the pattern for her daughter's quilt and thought the colours in the top left corner of the Pumpkins Gone Wild fabric would be a perfect palette.  I sent the photo off to Pam at Mad About Patchwork and asked her to put together a kit for "City Circle" in those colours.  She did a great job and the colours worked well.  It was a fun quilt to put together.  The sewing is very simple and I also have a whole bunch of triangle squares left over which will have to be made into something someday :-).

The finished quilt...I could not get a really good photo of the whole thing in my sewing room:

I found a perfect backing at a local quilt shop and, of course, it wasn't quite big enough!!  Pieced some leftover strips together for a modernish back too :-).

Wishing you both a long and happy marriage keeping warm with the quilt Emily and John!!
