Definitely Liking This

I've finished all 30 blocks for the hourglass quilt I'm working on, so I laid it all out to make sure I like it before sewing the quilt top together.

Yup, I definitely like it.

The colours are a little off since the sun's taken the day off. The client originally wanted a more grassy green (well she chose four kinds of greens...) but I think the touch of lime in the green sits better with the purple and grey. I hope she agrees!

Unfortunately with the lack of good lighting, the dots on the purple and white don't show up, nor do the little tiny flowers on the green. What did show up is my big toe. How'd that get in there...

I went to get fabrics to put together the backing. Normally for large quilts I use a flat sheet, but the client didn't want that. So I went with floral prints that have greens, purples and whites. And I think I'll do a scrappy binding in darker hues of the colours I used on the quilt top.
