    I finished the top, still need to do the back and here is a pic of the material for it. Still not sure what it will look like.

    Any ideas on how to quilt it.

    I will be doing it with my sewing machine and I have not done any free hand yet so not sure how good I would be or how it will come out. I sure done want to look ugly. :roll:

    One of the most striking arrangements of African fabrics I've ever seen. Someone early on page one said it right, it glows.

    Thank you everyone for the very positive feed back. I was not sure when it was going together if it was going to come out right. But like you all said it is beautiful, I love it also. I now need to make the back and then quilt it.

    Any suggestions on how to quilt it using a sewing machine, I'm not good at free hand yet.

    I see no one is giving any suggestion on a quilting plan, but just let me continue to say it is a gorgeous bit of work. The fabric is to die for.
