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.......
