Default Geisha Quilt Finished

I've finished the Geisha quilt I've been working on for a few weeks. My mom wanted to make this quilt for my cousin, but after purchasing the fabric 4 years ago, once she finally got around to starting it, she felt that her vision wasn't good enough to do it, so we planned it out together and I did the sewing and quilting. I'm honoured she let me do this for her, since this is really only my second pieced quilt.
The centre is pieced from Red Rooster Gion oriental fabric. My mom fussy-cut the geishas from the main fabric, and then the "frames" and the flowered border were cut from the striped fabric that matched. Then we pieced and added the other borders. The batting is Hobbs 80/20 cotton/poly and the backing is fireside fleece. The centre panel, flower border, the maroon and dark green borders are all FMQ, and the other two borders were done with the walking foot. All sewing and quilting were completed on my Janome 9400.
I'm pleased with the results and hope my cousin is happy with it too.

Thanks for looking.
