I worked on this quilt for about a year. I didn’t have it done when we got married, but I finished stitching the binding on the day we moved into our first house in Florida, about 5 months later. Michael is so tall his feet stuck out of the bottom of the quilt we had been using (the star quilt I made in college), so this is an extra long queen sized quilt. I also made it to have a color graduation to mimic the evening sky that Michael loves so much. The color graduation works out much cleaner on the yellow border.
The pattern is a variation on the standard log cabin called the chevron. I machine pieced the top and paid to have it quilted. I just can’t get something that large worked though my machine. One of these days maybe I’ll have a place to put a longarm. :o)
