Justin and Olivia's quilt

My nephew Justin got married in July to Olivia.  I had four different fabrics and had her pick the one she liked best.  I did a One Block Wonder quilt for them and had a great time making it. (Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of the original fabric.) Have I mentioned lately that those OBW's are addicting?  I have at least 15 different fabrics that could work for this pattern :-).  I had to test sew the six Featherweights that Jake serviced and this project provided lots of testing for them. 

it was a lot of fun playing with the layout of the blocks and adding the cubes

Finished quilt

the backing was found in the sale bin and matched perfectly

tried out a new quilting design for this quilt using Angela Walters' great book, "Free-Motion Quilting - 28 Designs Step by Step".
