Quick Progress!

I have been having real fun quilting this piece I started last Saturday at Janice's house. I have done a different free-motion motif in each of the colour bands using some lovely metallic threads I bought last year. You can't see the quilting in this picture - I did take some closeups but they came out blurred 'cos I am too tired to hold the camera still. O for a tripod! I will try again tomorrow.
I have decided to leave the edges in the jagged shape they. I am tossing up between satin stitching the edges or couching some king of yarn. This quilt has gone together really fast and is the first truly artistic piece I have attempted. I am pretty pleased with myself!!
