Almost REALLY finished!

I might have posted a pic of this quilt in July when I got the final borders sewn on...but now it's actually quilted!
Because of the formal layout of this top I wanted to quilt it in a symmetrical way.  So I resorted to a little marking... 
I still made the shapes free hand but just marking the mid-line kept me on track. 
I wanted the two halves of the HSTs to be distinct.  The white reads as background and the print as foreground so they each got there own pattern. 
It took a lot more time but I'm pleased with the result!
Happy Weekend!
Cheers, Claire W.
