If you're a REAL quilter, you have at least one UFO (unfinished object) and one WIP (work in progress) stashed in the closet or stacked on a shelf. Maybe you just need quilting suggestions, or maybe a fresh eye from a new online friend can help with block arrangements. How about a UFO swap? Any UFO conversation is welcome.

I made it this way because she likes the vintage side and he is a bit more modern in his tastes.  So whoever makes the bed gets to decide which side is up. LOL  That was the reasoning behind making it that way.

Beth, I need a road map!  I just realized from Carla's comment and your description that it is 1 quilt with 2 sides.  You do incredible work.  This will truly be a great wedding gift.

Beth, that is amazing and I totally love that its reversible. I would not even call that a backing. I would just call it reversible.   its beautiful.

I will definitely post a few wedding photos.  It is this weekend and I am feeling the pressure of making sure all is done.  The weather has cooled a bit and with the tent for the ceremony (outside wedding) in case it rains, we are covered, literally.  Still having issues with the MIL, but oh well, she best not be complaining if this wedding and reception are not up to her snuff since she does not want to help.  The wedding quilt is done except the binding and I have a friend who has offered to assist me in the task.  Now to attach the binding so I can hand it over to her.  Then the vest can be sewn tonight and finished up by tomorrow night.  Oh those button holes better be perfect the first time.  Yes I will practice on scrap material first before on the real thing to be sure there is no mistake.  Hubby will be wood burning the cake top this Friday.  His work schedule has been real hectic this last two weeks. 

On the wedding quilt, the back was a scrap quilt and a ufo combined.  Looks great and I will post full photos when I take them.  I am pleased with the outcome.  I give myself about an A on it.

l used to buy packaged batts by the case for my drapery shop's bedspreads. l found them easier to store, as l could stash them various places space allowed. 10 pkg/case, & l could chose the size, thickness, content...but all 10 had to be tge same.
