Wedding Quilt - a modified and finished UFO

This quilt was modified from a lap quilt to a queen.  Started with CT's pattern "Cabin Life" (I believe) and their flannels from that time.  I'd ordered extra fabric at the time, knowing I planned to make it larger.  I'd put together the original size back when I first got the pattern/fabric, but hadn't gotten around to finishing it.  I wanted to gift this for a wedding quilt, so a couple of weeks ago, I pulled it out and started working on it again.  

It reminds me of a Pendleton Hudson Bay blanket, and I really like how it turned out.  The back was pieced with more chunks of CT's flannel, but I didn't get a picture of the back.  It finished 90 x 96.  Cotton batt.  Machine quilted on my domestic machine - very simply.  It pretty much used up all of the flannel from this line - in fact, I ran short of the background fabric - even after piecing every little bit of it together that I could find - and had to substitute a close-but-not-exact match in 2 places.  Regardless, the couple loved it, which makes my heart smile.  It was finished the day before we left for the wedding.

Looks great, Jan! I’m sure the happy couple loved it. You’re off to a good start with your quest to finish UFOs!

Thanks all.

Carol Ann - no expert here by any stretch.  I drew on the pattern and followed the lines in the larger background pieces.  Just stitched in the ditch along the stripes..  No free motion except for the flowers.  I am not fond of quilt wrangling, but necessity and a deadline sometimes dictates.  Also, I always wash the quilts afterward and the shrinking/puckering hides a multitude of quilting sins.  :)

It reminds me of one of those blankets, too.

Looks great PQ.  Love the colors too.

Wow, PQ!  That turned out beautifully!  I can't believe you quilted it yourself on your domestic sewing machine.  I would never have attempted that!  You must be an expert "quilt wrestler."

It does look like a Hudson Bay blanket to me also.  Good work.
