    This is not my choice of colors and the sunlight is really yellow right now, but here is my newest top, just one more strip to sew on and a corner, then a border. But too hot to sew tonight.

    It's lovely Overlander. If it isn't your choice of colours, who is it for? I like them anyway.

    Thanks for your comments - the color choices were made by the owner of the shop I'm making it for to show off a new line of fabric. They are lovely fabrics. The wavy darker material is a muted purple that is in almost all the other fabrics also either in stripes, dots or floral outlines. It is very pretty. I'll try for a better picture this afternoon and who knows may have it finished.

    Here is the finished top and the colors are much clearer. Brought it in to the shop on Monday and it will be displayed with the bolts of fabric and the pattern. :)

    Believe it or not this is called Pressed Flowers. It is supposed to have appliqued flowers in the big inset triangles, but it looked awful so I didn't put them on. :0

    It is very nice I love the material, and I think it looks great without the flowers. You did a great job. What happens to the quilt once it goes off display? do you get it back?

    You've done such lovely work on the quilt, Over. The pattern looks like it was quick and fun. Was it?
