Finish it Up Friday!

I finally have a bona fide newly finished piece for Finish it up, Friday! Sure, I actually finished it last Saturday, be since this calls for anything finished since lasat Friday, I'm in! I apologize for the shabby pictures, but I finished this a whopping nine hours before I was due to hand it over to the recipients. Behold, a King-sized wedding quilt!

The Block pattern is a Friendship star, although I've also seen this pattern with a four-patch instead of a solid block in the corners called a Chinese coin (heaven knows why):

It is finished with a 5" border down each long side and a 10" border at the top and bottom in contrasting fabrics, and then an additional 5" border in the pebble/bubble fabric around all sides. The backing is two panels of the tile print split by a panel of pale blue that is a matching fabric to the pale blue in the HSTs on the front:

I quilted this very simply, with a fairly open diagonal stitch for the patchwork area on the front and stippling in the borders. Hopefully it will keep my newlywed friends nice and warm on their mountain this winter.

Thanks for stopping by! I've gotten a lot of mileage out of this colour palette, it's one of my favourites, too!
