Quilt for Boyfriend's parents

Being off work meant that I was able to get a big chunk of the work done on Christmas and New Year presents. This is another quilt all complete and ready to be shipped out to its new owner. It's for the boyfriend's parents. They live in Oman and we're going out to visit them at New Year. It may seem like an impractical present for somebody who lives in a country where it can top 50 degrees C in the summer but they're moving back to England at the end of January so it will be practical as well.

I'll have to practice taking pictures of quilts because you can't really see the fabrics but you do get an idea of the overall pattern. Here's a close up which shows off the colours better as well as showing you a glimpse of the contrasting backing.

I used a variegated thread for the quilting which looks lovely on the back but, yet again, my photography skills aren't living up to the subject matter. Hmmm, I may have to rope big sister in for some photography lessons ....
