green violet quilt - done!!

it is finally done, yay!! well, it took me long enough.. :-)
anyway: the solids are from Kona, the prints are japanese Kokka cottons and cotton/linen-blends. the batting is some fluffy cotton which shrank quite nicely.
and the pattern is from Cherry House Quilts and it´s called City Scapes.

detail on quilting: i did straight lines following the seams of the blocks. the threads of the top are matching the blocks, i used 5 different colors.

for the back i just used a shade of violet to blend in.

the binding is a Kona Cotton, the color is Mustard, a bit off-yellow which nicely matches the little Kokka-pigs :-)
