Wedding quilt for a first anniversary

If you read my blog regularly, you may remember that my youngest son got married last October.  You can read about it here.  At their wedding, the guests had an opportunity to sign a quilt block.  I finally got the quilt all put together this summer.  I just got it back from the quilter a couple of weeks ago.  I finally finished the binding on Sunday.
Here is a nice sideways picture that I took on the clothesline today.  It is a big quilt, and it's hard to get a picture of it.  We didn't get as may guests to sign a block as I'd hoped.  But that's okay, the blank ones look good, too.

I found the tutorial online, here.  It went together quickly (don't know what my excuse is for having it take so long to compete!)I love the way it turned out.
Here is a sweet message from my sister-in-law.
And another message..
I used a leftover quilt block to make the label.  And I promise to get a picture of the happy couple with their quilt!
