Quilt for Christmas - Not For Me !

I still lack putting borders on this quilt. I made it as a commission.

My customer wants the borders to be Orange & Burgundy.

There are 144 blocks in this top! I didn't think I'd ever get them all done.

Pattern is Antique Checks / 9 Patch Reunion byAtkinson Designs.

I didn't have anywhere large enough to display it out flat that I could get a whole photo, except in my longarm studio. I have 3 florescent lights in there (so I can see while quilting) and the lights make this quilt seem brighter than it actually is. there ARE some bright prints in it, but it isn't in the crayon-y looking colors like it appears in the photos. The top photo is the border choices. And I have to choose quickly in order to get them onto the quilt, quilted & bound by this time next week.......

Hi, I saw your post on "Do you blog" and thought I would visit.
OMG, you QUILT with a capital Q.
I am only going on one year of quilting and can't believe it's gone by so fast.
I love the blogging and the visits from friends, family and especially other quilters. It's so fun!

Wow, what a stunning quilt from a nine-patch oriented pattern. It really looks complicated until you look at the block. You did a wonderful job choosing just the right fabrics. The colors make your eye just bounce around the quilt.... all 144 squares. Better you than me :-)!
