Top Almost Complete

My Philadelphia Pavement quilt top is almost complete, I just need to add a couple of plain borders and its ready for quilting!
(I apologise for the photos but it is dark and wet here and its so big I just threw it on the bed). I think the colours work well together, even though they are different to the original quilt made by Barbara Snyder Stoner in 1895.
I love the centre diamond, this is a really lovely layout and it has been fun to do but I must say that Im pleased to have this part of it complete!!


It is huge already so I am debating on the borders but Ive got a few days to think about it......Jules and I are off to Sydney for 4 days, for some "girl" fun!! Cant wait, you packed yet Jules?? Ill tackle the borders when I get back next week!

This quilt is impressive! I love how it's all solids - something I couldn't do as I find prints way too tempting:). Enjoy your time away. Good luck finishing this quilt!

What a beautiful quilt! It is such an interesting setting. I scrolled down and saw your Dresden plates - they are so pretty. I'm curious to see them set with the Jacob's ladder variation.
