Escape to Harmony



So here's how I'm doing on the quilt I posted about last week. I finally decided on an arrangement that I liked, and added two smallish borders. It's turned out to be a square composition instead of a rectangle, which was the problem for me I think. That's what happens to me all the time (curse you rectangular sketchbook!!).
Here's what it looked like before I started in on the quilting.








Then I went mad quilting with all kinds of colors, with the thread color matching the shape, then escape out through a similar color in the small colored border. Almost done with quilting now. The yellowish hue is because when I took the picture, I forgot to turn off my studio lights. Whoops.















Here is a closeup so you can see the quilting a bit better.
