A good friend of  our family has a nephew who we have gotten to know well over the past years via canoe trips, ski trips and adventure travels taken together.  He and his long time girl friend announced their wedding last year and of course my first reactio...

Took a class in improvisational quilting this summer that had a class in creating curves.  Decided to pull out the class project and add some more curves and finish it off with background.  Thinking about adding some reverse appliqué pebbles.  I'll let the thought mellow a day or so and then decide.

I think I posted the middle, pieced section of this quilt a couple of weeks back.  Here is the back to go with the front.  The back is designed so that the quilting for the pieced middle will be in the large negative space.   Will be working on the sandwich this week and hopefully quilting by next week.

My weakest skill in making quilts is figuring out what colors, values and prints would look good together.  Would appreciate some suggestions and tips on picking out fabric.   I usually rely on a close friend and  my daughter's advice on fabric as they both have a good eye for color and design...but I can't bring them to the store every time!  I am tending toward more modern fabrics and patterns lately, if that helps in the suggestions and tips.

Thanks in advance :-)

Finished the shams to go with the quilt I made for my daughter.  Had to get creative on the backs because I didn't have enough fabric of any one print to do them in one fabric.
