Show Off Saturday and Christmas Blog Hop

I can finally share this finish.  I shared the beginnings of the quilt here.  The colours are based on the family tartan:



Three of the fabrics were Kona:  Juniper, Curry, and Grellow.  Unfortunately, my photos don't show the trueness of the colours.


I didn't want the quilting to over-power the pattern design, so I went with an all-over stipple in a matching yellow thread.


The centre is an embroidered celtic knot that forms a heart.  A friend at my LQS was kind enough to do the embroidery.
