Catching up on quilts

I am a bit behind on posting my here goes...

This is from Kaffe Fassett's Passionate Patchwork book....the "Fonthill Quilt"...

there are several more borders to go on it! Lots of 1.5 inch half-square triangles forming sawtooth borders and pinwheels. These are separated and held together by a soft green floral.

More borders to come!

Now a look at my "Sakiori" quilt from the book "Japanese Quilt Inspirations" by Susan Briscoe.

Here the top and back are basted together for quilting. I love the cheerful bird print on the back!

The finished quilt, mostly machine quilted (on an antique Singer 301) and hand-quilted in the gold circles.
