|Amy and Tim open the quilt!|

I did my best to work within a color palette of blues, purples, blue-greens, and burgundies, and I'm guessing there are somewhere in the neighborhood of 40 or more different fabrics in the quilt, as most of the fabrics I used were fat quarter cuts. I realized later on that I could have used some left over jelly roll strips, as some of the units were based on a 2.5" grid.

I have four extra blocks left over (they are large, at 19" square) that I plan to sew up into a separate project, perhaps for one of the handmade gifts I promised in a Facebook challenge earlier this year. We'll see whether I can bear to part with them.
Wishing Tim and Amy many, many years of happiness!
