ORB Quilt Along

Marianne sent me some photos of my quilt...Here it is in the long-arm machine: Here is the quilting up close. We chose a pantograph called "Fantasia" - I love it. Marianne quilted it with a pink and brown variegated thread. I'm hoping that the brown will help to tie the brown fabrics in with all the white and pink.
Here is an close up of the back. I used my left-over pieces to piece the back together. I chose a Sandi Henderson print for the back. I love how you can see the quilting in the white.
And here it is all ready to be bound. Can't wait to get it back in the mail so I can see it in person. Thanks again Marianne.
