A belated wedding gift

I posted about this quilt months ago. The top was completed in January...after being sketched out for months in every journal I own.
It's for a couple I know that got married on New Years in 2010... They each were single parents of 3 young kids (total Brady Bunch!) and they now have 5 boys and 1 girl... Including two boys with the same name. They're awesome.
I was so inspired by their love and story... Especially after knowing the wife's own story of "rebuilding joy" only she has a different poetic name for her journey... That I wanted to represent it in a quilt. Then of course I decided it needed to be hand quilted. (which means they now are getting email updates about their gift as it travels to parks and other adventures with me while I work on it.)
Getting close to done... I can't wait to finish it and send it off to them.
