Istanbul - Just a peek

My Istanbul Quilt is back from the wonderful Desley who once again has woven her magic and I am thrilled with the result.
As I have mentioned in previous posts - this is our Wedding gift to our DS#1 and DDIL, so I am not going to show it all off until it is bound!

BUT because I just had to share, here are just a few 'teasers' for those who have been following my progress .....


Outer border

(Here I have strayed from the original pattern in that my borders are not RED.)


The Center medallion

(You have all seen me working on the applique here, so I think it's OK to peek)



and it's outside edge...

(Lots of lovely feathers and pebbles).



I can't wait to show off the finished quilt - but I think there are a couple of people who need to see it first!
