asian quilt top and customer's quilt done

yesterday afternoon and this morning I've gotten a few more things done- quilting wise :-)

I pulled out the black and white and red asian looking blocks and sewed them together into a 5 x 7 layout

I had 36 blocks, so I have one orphan block now, sorry you didn't make the cut!

I had some leftover kona black from the QR quilt for my husband and cut 4 1/2" strips and added those, but now the black in the blocks look greyish or washed out, hmph! oh well...

I'm also part of a funky block swap and march is MY month, so I have the fabrics and things all cut out, and directions printed

here's a pile of envelopes ready to be mailed

yesterday I mounted this customer quilt on my frame and this morning I quilted it

I did an all over design on large flowers and leaves

and this is my lunch today, leftover chili! yummy.

I love the Asian quilt, too!! I've been looking for something just like that (and in the same colors, too!) for my son - he has a new apartment and is using an Asian decorating theme, in those colors. Yours looks fantastic...I'm going to have to zoom in and snoop around some, lol!

Hi Bea, love, love your Asian quilt! Wonder if you could do some heavy quilting on the black border with gray thread to make recede a bit?
Can't wait to see what's in the package!!! The colors look awesome :-)
