    Quilt fresh off the rack

    This is a christmas gift for my daughter. The pattern is Pandora's Box from the book Jelly Roll Quilts. The fabric is Diawabo Japanese taupe. I pieced the top on a vintage Singer 401 and quilted it on a Voyager. An all over meander is the extent of my quilting abilities, but I have fun doing it. Now I need to make the binding. I'm thinking maybe maroon.

    It's wonderful! I love earth tones. Good job on the quilting too.

    Love the quilt. I think I would use the same fabric for the binding as the outer border.

    That's what I thought too. Then my husband suggested that maroon shade from the quilt. I actually ended up picking a beige color from the quilt. I'll post a pic when I finish sewing it on.

    Really pretty colors and like the pattern. I typically bind with a quilt color other than the border but I like both ideas for this quilt. Good job on FMQ...

    Wonderful quilt.
