Hand and machine quilting today

Today I finished my small quilt based on the analogous colour scheme of blue-green, green and blue in various values, hand quilted with complimentary colours of perle cotton. I bound it in a bright blue-green, a turquoise hand woven cotton.

I also worked on the machine quilting of the Houses quilt. All is done except for the borders at top and bottom.
