Gray and Yellow Wedding Quilt

My cousin Doug got married to his beautiful wife Brittany in June and of course, I made them a quilt! Their wedding colors were gray and yellow. At first I had a hard time finding a gray and yellow quilt that didn't read "baby quilt", but finally I found the perfect pattern. Natalia Bonner has a book called "Modern One-Block Quilts" and there is a quilt inside called the "A-Maze Me Quilt". The sample in the book was gray and yellow, so I could perfectly picture what the final result would be!

My next decision was which size pattern to follow. I had a choice between a 66" x 66" (which looked too small) or a 99" x 99". I chose the bigger one, thinking it would look better on their bed. After assembling this quilt top (and sewing non-stop one night from 5:00PM to 2:30AM to finish it in time to drop off to be quilted!) I vowed never to make a quilt that big again! At least not for awhile. Haha. ;) In the end, they were VERY happy with how it turned out. I've included a video at the end that shows the moment I gave it to them. Recording videos of the recipients receiving their quilts is my new favorite thing to do, especially when I can't be with them in person. I love that I get to watch their reactions over and over. They make me smile every time I watch them. Without further ado, here are some pictures of the "A-Maze Me Quilt".
The quilt was too big for my sister and I to hold up without help, so we laid it out on the floor instead.
The next few pictures give you an idea just how big the quilt was. I am 5'1"!
As promised, here is the video of Doug and Brittany receiving their quilt.
