Bloggers' Quilt Festival - The Wedding Quilt

My entry for the Fall 2011 Bloggers' Quilt Festival is the wedding quilt I made for our friends Celeste and Steve. 
This quilt was possibly the most traditional quilt I've ever made and one of the rare times I've followed a pattern. But of course I swopped out a few blocks and made it just a little differently.

The centre block is Swoon, by Camille. I think it fit the quilt so perfectly :)

I had no clue how to quilt this, so I put it off for the longest time. But I thought that stippling in the 'negative' spaces might be the best solution. And it didn't even take as long as I thought it would! 

We finally gifted the quilt a week ago and they were just thrilled :) They're getting new furniture so they want us to visit when they have everything in place so we can see the quilt in its new home. Can't wait :)
