Last week I finished a quilt I have been working on for some time.  I promised it to my brother for his wedding, which was over 3 years ago.  I bought all the fabric, but didn't start it until late last year.  I had to leave it for a while because of other commitments, but finally finished it last week.  (yay!)  It is based on a Kaffe Fasset design.  I call it 'sitting in a tree...' because it is a wedding (now anniversary) present and it is rich green, red and gold colours.  The quilting is stipple/meander quilting, with a 'waves' border.  I had to learn machine quilting as I went, so I started adding some fancy patterns towards the end.  The binding is not very clear - it is musical bars/notes, which is because my brother and his wife are both musicians.  Comments, feedback would be welcome!
Here is the quilt

This is a close-up

and here is a detail of the quilting

The colours look a bit washed out in the pictures - they are very rich in real life.  Hope you like...

Your quilt turned out GREAT!  I bought that same K.F. book because of that pattern, but have yet to start it.  Good going!

Thanks for your kind words.  Ummmm.... I can't remember how big it is - It is a double bed size.  I'll check it out when I get home from work.
