Last week when I participated in the online quilt festival, this quilt wasn't finished, but the final stitches were sewn on the train to Moscow last Thursday night and even in the hotel there! This is my new favorite quilt to share, but I can't wait until the second annual online event! It's made of all Marimekko fabrics (including the binding) from my February shopping spree (with Kona white around the blocks - and some random non-Marimekko pieces on the back), totals 89"x89", and has cotton/bamboo batting. It's the largest quilt I've ever quilted on my Bernina - and only the second double/queen-sized quilt I've ever finished. I have a few other Marimekko projects underway and hope to have photos here soon!
The wedding itself was fabulous - my oldest friend and his terrific new wife. I can't even begin to describe it. In summary: fabulous people, friends new and old; ridiculous amounts of champagne, vodka, caviar, and Lays potato chips; photos in Red Square; rented minibuses and wedding traffic; Ave Maria and the Hora. Think the USSR meets Vegas meets Massachusetts.
