That's beautiful Sakar and gosh it's huge.

And yes, it is :D Winter nights can be cold and I wanted the quilt large enough for the young couple to fit underneath  ;)

Both of the quilts are fantastic Sakar. You have my utmost respect. I tried the binding star quilt as well from Jenny's tutorial and it worked ok but I couldn't work out how to enlarge it and gave it up in the end. The dog loved it in her basket though, so it wasn't wasted. Yours is truly beautiful.  <3

Thanks :)

Yes, it was "a bit" tricky and it took me a while to come to an end with those blocks... and it looks better while standing back a little bit ;)
Fortunately it works fine with this dark background.

The wedding quilt is just beautiful. And such a big one....how much fun was it to tackle and put together!?

That is beautiful , as usual. What do the symbols in the middle mean? What a special gift for the happy couple!

It was great fun to put it together, especially because I couldn't decide on the style, so I made a kind of "how to finish this top?" party with my mother and a quilting-friend :)

The couple is very religious and I know, what their faith means to them.
Those 3 symbols are the "main-basics" for the Christian faith in the Catholic church (in traditional colours)

Tau-Cross: Faith (no specific colour)
Heart: love (red)
Anchor: Hope (green)

And because it's a wedding gift I added the rings to it, but that's my free interpretation  :P
