Finished for Friday

I have another Finish for Friday. You can join all of us "FFF-ers" at Lit and Laundry.

This quilt is a (late) wedding gift that I started about a year ago. So I guess it will be an anniversary gift now. (Lest I appear completely lazy and stingy, I would like to point out that we did give them a gift at the time, along with the promise of a quilt.)
I only used one black and white print for all the squares. The couple decorates with a lot of black and white architectural photos (that they have taken themselves) so I wanted to reflect those. I think this works. I ended up really liking the black and white, which is surprising since I usually like color and scrappiness so much.

I quilted it about a half an inch on either side of the ditch.

The back is solid white because I found that anything with a print showed through on the front of the quilt. I also just think it looks really nice with the simple front.

This quilt measure 70" x 80", so it's a very generous throw size. Plenty of room for two to cuddle under. (If they still like to cuddle. It has been a year, after all.)
