Found a spot for it on the wall...
Here are some photos taken in a different light to show up the quilting:
None of the quilting lines were marked on the quilt - just followed seam lines or free-motion stippled. But I wanted to make especially sure the lines on the Toile triangles (above ) were evenly spaced. I am not a fan of markers because I have made a mess of them before. So I thought I'd try a method I'd read about - using lines drawn on thin foundation piecing (or greaseproof) paper and sewing over it - seemed ingenious!?

Thanks so much to Sue 's generosity with this kit. It was a great little challenge and lots of fun!
Here's a touch of autumn in the garden - the weather here has been just perfect recently.

And now ... I hear a new project calling... Carolina Lily (see end of the post in this link) starting soon ...so exciting!
