Almost Done

I got the Chez Moi quilt back from the machine quilter yesterday. Wheeee! Very exciting. There’s no binding on it yet and my preliminary measuring of the brown tonal has me barely eeking out the necessary length. I’ll figure that out somehow. Nevertheless, I’m so excited. The wonky star looks great. And I love the colorful variegated thread in the quilting. The quilting certainly hasn’t tamed the colors in any way but it has unified the overall look somehow. I think it’s striking but not jarring.

I tell myself that if I race, I may be able to get this on our bed soon after our move. Who am I kidding, we’re moving next week. Anytime in the next month will be lucky considering how much needs to be done during the whole moving chaos. More photos when it’s truly finished.

    I love the reddish pink [or is that pinkish red?] in the border too it really frames it so well. Can’t wait to see it on the bed.
