Sister’s quilt … piecing finished

Yes, it’s true, the piecing is finished on the quilt for my sister … it’s been busy evenings, as that is more or less the only time I have to work on it, but my mum did helped a lot as well.

There was a bit of decision making in the process about the order of strips in the border … white, orange, red? or white, red, orange? or orange, red and white??

But as you can bit further I think we did the right choice. I must say I like it a lot. Colours might not be my style, but they still go together very nicely and I know my sister will love it!! So that’s the important thing! Now I just need to resist the temptation to show it to her, I actually want to quilt it and send it to her in time for Christmas and make her big surprise!!
