Holiday quilt, off the frame

Here's the monster finally quilted. It's too big to get a good picture of without moving the furniture, and as my class will be here any minute that isn't going to happen. I am really pleased with how it has come out, but I think Tet is perhaps too pleased. Rather than going straight on the bed this will be doing some shows first. Oh well can't win them all. I guess this will be an on going problem, either I do poor quilting on my quilts or I will have to wait to use them. I guess I can live with waiting.

What a stunning quilt - great colours and the quilting is amazing!

Thanks, I can't take credit for the colours, it is a kit from http://starrfabrics.com/
I did change the background colour and add some borders, but it is her hand dyed fabrics that make it sing.

The thread is Aurifil, which I was testing, and I am really pleased with the result.

It's lovely, I can quite see why you won't be allowed to use it on the bed!
