Off to the long-arm quilter

I finally finished this quilt top. It will be given to my in-laws. They have a lot of these colors in their flat so I hope they like it. It is off to be quilted. There is no way I could handle quilting that one on my regular sized machine.

It is a variation of Star Cakes. I added 3" sashing and my blocks were slightly smaller after I trimmed them square. Don't you find it difficult to be really precise with the pinked edge of precuts? It started with a layer cake of Moda's Collections for a Cause: Tradition. I removed the navy prints and added a couple of browns and blacks from my stash. The tan background was also from my stash.

It doesn't look so great in our bedroom that normally has plum bedding. And nothing looks good with that hideous carpet that is still a remnant of the previous owners. You have no idea how happy I would be to see that gone but my husband has yet to agree to have it replaced. Isn't 6+ years enough already!?!? Someday, someday...
