“Out of Africa” Quilted !

I finished the quilting and binding :


I was able to capture some “definition” in the morning light high-lighting the “Terry Twist” quilting motif:


Three borders:


Outer, Black and White Animal Print:


Middle, Orange Animal Print:


Inner, Cream Animal Print:


Some of the Individual Kaleidoscope Blocks:


The finished quilt is about 95 inches by 98 inches. All the fabrics are 100 % cottons from the fabric collection “Out of Africa” by Tina Higgins for Quilting Treasures. The batting is Hobbs 80/20. The thread is YLI Polished Poly. The binding is applied by machine. The machine quilting is hand guided on an Innova long-arm quilting machine. The quilting design in the hexagons is Sally Terry’s simple “Terry Twist” motif.
