Wedding Keepsake Quilt - Part I

For the wedding, I made 20 fabric centerpieces/runners for our dinner tables. I've not yet obtained a full photo of them in action, but once the wedding was over, I had basically just decided that they'd served their purpose and they'd go into storage. Michael's mom, however, aptly suggested that maybe I could use them to make a quilt. What an excellent idea, so that is exactly what I have spent the last week working on. I decided to use a "Drunken Path" quilt as inspiration in order to use the rounded fabric most efficiently. Although I'm not yet done, I'm already super excited about this one!
