Finish It Up Friday...A Wedding To Remember

This lovely friend of mine was married last Saturday!
Married in in England, no less.
I was blessed to travel over and celebrate the day with her.
I finished her wedding present several weeks ago, but couldn't share.
 This barn star design is one I've wanted to try out for some time.
I used the border fabric as my inspiration for the colors, close to her wedding color choices.

 This feather backing fabric from Connecting Threads didn't match the colors exactly, but is super cute!
 Congrats, my dear "twin"! 


  1. Alissa! I love the quilt you made for Kristen! Absolutely beautiful work. I'm proud of you and your art!! I am so glad you had a wonderful time and I am sure it meant so much to Kristen that you could be there to celebrate such a special day :). Can't wait to catch up State-side before too long. kisses!

  2. Wow - what a quilt. Amazing make for the wedding - you have a very lucky friend. Hope you enjoyed your trip to UK!

    1. I loved my time in England! Most of it was spent in Exeter. Everyone I met was so kind.

  3. How exciting! Your quilt is gorgeous!! I have got a triple barnstar quilt top waiting to be quilted, I hope it turns out as lovely as yours!

    1. I just love the pattern! I've had a picture of a barn star quilt on my computer desktop for months just waiting for the opportunity!
