Megan's quilt in progress

Our god daughter Megan (one of two as she has a twin sister Caitlin) was married in early September in Boston to Dim.  I am working on a quilt for her, and designed it in the Modern Quilt style, with lots of white background and saturated colours. Here it is in progress.
Hem stitching the binding.

The border triangles.

Some machine quilting done.
Here is the quilt, with only the borders quilted and the binding not yet hemmed.
