Wedding quilt - Labyrinth

We are just back from California where we attended DH's son's wedding. It was beautiful. It was held in the rose garden in the L.A. Arboretum. We had send other gifts, but this one I delivered in person.
This is from the pattern "Labyrinth" - we had the designer as a speaker at guild a year or so ago. I bought the pattern then. I quilted it with my new IntelliQuilter on Black Bart. I purchased a pattern designed especially for this pattern by Nancy Haake from Wasach Quilting http://www.digitizedquiltingpatterns.com/shop/product/5-lg-modern-labyrinth-pattern-set/ 
This was the first time I actually SID'd the entire quilt before I started filling in the quilting. The sections were so large I had to move it a lot to get them all in. I had to change one pattern to P2P triangles on the large grey box - I couldn't divide the one in the pattern without a lot of starts and stops. It turned out well - but I sure learned a lot about what I didn't know in IQ. I was ready for all my IQ classes at MQS right after I finished this. Here are some close-ups of the quilting:


And the label which DH did all the design work for - I only wrote the words:
Happy Quilting,
Becky

What a wonderful quilt. And, oh the quilting. I must take a look at that web site as I am always looking for sources. Last, but definitely NOT least -- the label is fabulous. I love the line about being paid for by the father of the groom. Terrific. You have been one very busy quilter with this and the Scrap Squad quilts.
