So Delicious plus jelly beans equals wedding quilt...........

Started off  just over 2 weeks ago to make a wedding present..........
A layer cake + jelly roll + So Delicious pattern by The Quilters Coup + some yardage for borders..........
All purchased at The Quilters Coup
Fabrics are Jelly Bean by Laundry Basket Quilts for Moda
trying to keep bits of the fabrics as a record of what I used...........
I changed mine from the pattern by adding another row
left over I had 2 layer cake sqaures and just over 3 jelly roll strips........
fantastic use of a layer cake and jelly roll..........and it was a good size but I love big quilts so added the big floral border.............
I squared off all the blocks before adding more to them........................
piecing blocks.........
some of the quilting you can see better on the back.........
I hadn't thought ahead well to organise quilting so thanks for the quick service..........
Much appreciated...........
the quickest quilt from start to finish probably ever.......
ta da........my quilt holders were struggling to hold this one up............
96 x 96 in
I was trying to think of a name or something to write and this pattern was suited to a wedding.........
2 halves become one in the centre of the block.....2 lives becoming one joining in marriage...
thanks for your comments on the binding.............it is interesting to see how fast I bind..........more to know how long it takes fitting it in then a race...............but I was worried about getting it finished in time................
Catch you later
