I heard on the radio yesterday that earth tones and browns are The Hot colours in decorating this season.
I guess this quilt is very right then - the recipient is very into home decorating :-)
As you can see the quilt is now ready for machine quilting. It will be straight seams, so I will put the accu feed foot on the Janome.
I hope to be able to finish the machine quilting today. Maybe even start working on the binding. I hope to be able to cut it, join the lengths and maybe sew it on by machine so I can start doing the hand sewing tomorrow.
