Wedding Quilt Completed - "Sweet Like Chocolate"

Wow, what an accomplishment, I have finally finished the wedding quilt that I started some time back for friends of ours that got married in April last year.
Today I made the quilt label and tag and made a bag to store the quilt in when not in use.
Tonight I gave it to our friends who were thrilled with it, these guys are also this week expecting their first baby - she is due tomorrow!! I wanted to make sure she had the quilt before the baby so that on those cold nights of feeding, she would have a beautiful quilt around her to keep herself warm.

This is the ultimate gift - to be able to give someone something that you have made yourself and that you enjoy making and then giving away!
