Shirt-stripe boxes quilt all done!

I got my shirt stripe quilt back from the quilters recently (Dot's Quilting, Cape Town). I chose an all-over stipple pattern because it adds texture to the quilt (and its also the most affordable option at the moment...). I added some diagonal stripe binding by hand, and now its all ready for winter. Here's a close-up.
I've been working on my wedding d├ęcor, I've decided to do my own flowers and decorations. I will share some of my endeavours tomorrow. It is autumn here at the moment and the surrounding vineyards have just started to change colours. Glorious!

Love your Striped Boxes quilt. It's such a great pattern and I really love the colours you've used. I made one in shades of blues and whites but I really like your bits of red and purple to break it up a bit. The stipple quilting looks great too.
