Ready for Quilting

Remember the Christmas quilt for my brother-in-law? Well, it is finished and has left the building. As I write it is enroute to Perth where it will be quilted.
I found fabric for the sashing,

an elaborate paisley print for the border,

and had lots of pep talks during this past week concerning its' completion.

And here it is! I was forced to nix the border which seems a bit anticlimactic, but it became far too large for anyone's good. I think Frankie would have liked those paisleys though.
Jacqui has kindly carried it back to Perth for quilting. Then I must persuade one of my girls to carry it with them to Canada on my behalf - a request which may not go over very well! We shall see!
