Wall hanging for a wedding gift

Part of the deal of my mini fabric obsession is that I get to make gifts for people.  
I find this to be a smashing deal, especially after a finish.

Earlier this month my fella went flying off to one of his best friends weddings.  
I sent him with this wall-hanging

Wedding ET Phone Home - front

This is from Lily's Quilts her stunning ET Phone Home tutorial.

I enlarged this pattern by who knows how much.
I want to work with bigger patterns at the moment.

Can you see the Pat Bravo, Amy Butler, Kaffe Fassett, Joel Dewberry, Denyse Schmidt, AND Tula Pink love all throughout this beauty!

I added hangers on each corner,
you know as it looks SO different any which way you hang it.


I added some hand-stitching details.

Oh and I even finished the binding by hand - ohhh ahhhhh!

So much love in this for the happy couple. ♥
