My friend Anna is getting married next summer, and that means that I'm making her and Morgan a wedding quilt. With my levels of procrastination, I need to start working on it *now.* I have the first step out of the way- picking colors, fabrics, and a pattern. They'll be receiving a queen sized Take 5 quilt in browns, blues and yellows.

In January, I finally experienced the joy of finishing my first quilt. I used to Take 5 pattern- you are supposed to choose *5* fabrics that you like, and have a nice, orderly quilt. I broke the rules. I kept finding more and more fabrics that I liked, so finally I decided, "Heck with being orderly! I'm using all of these!"
I used a striped homespun for the binding, cutting it on the bias, to make it diagonal.
I rather like it!
