An anniversary quilt done

I was commissioned to make this quilt, which is about 22x28 inches, for the couple's first anniversary.  The poem embroidered in the upper left of the picture was written by Sam, the groom, and sung to Yomiko, the bride . This is from a photo, obviously, which I was able to print on fabric.  I created her gown and his formal attire from my own fabric.  The gold colored background and binding is a William Morris all over design.  The white border is from a Japanese print fabric which also had all the flowers which were fussy cut and fused onto the design.  I had quite a bit of input from the commissioner of the piece, including choosing the fabrics  and arranging the flowers.  So in a sense I was not the designer, just the sewer.  It will be given to them this weekend.  I hope they like it.
