Friday Flaunt

Well I have finally finished attaching the outer border to Turkish Delight. Feeling very happy with how it went too.

All that needs to be done now is to make a new centre and replace the vase then all will be done. I haven't liked the vase for quite a while now and figured that I would simply throw something over it when the quilt was finished.

Paul however had the bright idea that as it isn't quilted yet why not simply remove it and replace it with something I prefer. Clever boy huh?

I have designed a feathered star which I hope to make in the upcoming week. Making it in a variety of greens will help to unite the outer border back in with the rest of the quilt... I am also over the multicoloured sections too.
Can you work out why this quilt has been in the UFO pile for years:)

Have booked it in with a longarmer, who unfortunately can't do it until early next year so even in that area I can't organise things as I would like.

This quilt is yummy! Black always makes a quilt pop, and with the wash of colors, it's just eye-catching. Can't wait to see the feather center; you probably can't either! Paul has excellent taste.

Too clever. Bet you worked out all the maths also which upsets me greatly as I can only do approximations....LOL.

Thank you. Mind you the black background allows a lot of fudging for accuracy:)

Just love your quilt, Cinzia. Dark fabrics show off coloureds so well, don't they? No flaunt from me today - have been Floriading and visiting DD in Canberra instead.

No I can't understand why this gorgeous quilt top has languished as a UFO!!! The colours are beautiful.

Cinzia, your quilt is gorgeous. I don't mind the vase, but if it annoys you, it is best to remove it. I once had a round robin quilt where the 2nd or third round was olive. Most of the quilt was blue... I replaced that round and was so much happier!
I love the subtle colour changes in you quilt.
