Paisley presents the S & T2 Quilt unveiled

A quick post before I go off to get wrapped up in sari for the wedding this evening. Here is the quilt that I have made for S & T2's wedding present.

S&T2 Quilt

The colours are a bit richer in the flesh - the photo was taken late in the afternoon and the sunlight washes the colour out a bit. A detail shot of the quilt, taken indoors, is below and shows the colour to better advantage.
