Kimono Quilt, done

The full size picture isn’t great (nor does it actually show the entire quilt), but hopefully it gives you enough of an idea of the look of the quilt.

Aren’t these little kimonos adorable?  The blocks area  combination of piecing and applique.

You can still see some remnants of my purple air erasable marker.  I marked lots of registration and guidelines to keep me organized.

I really struggled with what to put in the green triangles around the kimonos.  I wanted to frame them, but not overpower them.  But didn’t want to underquilt.  Or clash with what I had chosen for the sashing.  In the end, the simple Continuous Curve won the debate, and I’m happy with the final result.

Now, to finish that second double nine patch (the top is done, but the quilting is waiting) and then I’m ALMOST done with the must-be-done-before-Christmas-quilting.

I also have a fun last-minute project for a customer that I’ll try to share later, too, as I think some of you  might be interested in it, not necessarily as a Christmas present, but maybe for those high school graduations coming up next Spring!
