I made this as a wedding gift for my niece and her new husband a few years ago. Since she knew what she was getting and she has an excellent eye for color (she's the one I just made the Dino baby quilt for) I broke my own rules and let her pick both the quilt pattern and the fabrics. Little did I realize this quilt had over 1200 pieces to cut and assemble! Quite the challenge I must say - which is why they got it almost 5 months after the wedding. This was one of the few times I forgot to get a picture before the quilt left my hands so I had to get one once it was already in use. My design wall was definitely a must when figuring out the flow of the colors!
