Pickle Dish quilt

These are the pictures of my pickle dish quilt that I finished yesterday . The pattern is in Kaffe Fasset,s Quilt Romance , I love the strong colours that he uses . I was very pleased how this one turned out .
Because the joints of my fingers are worn out through years of hand quilting, I used to do a lot of wholecloth, gave them away not realising that the day would come when I couldn,t do any more . This one is machine quilted on a ordinary Brother domestic machine .



This is the border of the quilt


This is the backing,

Your quilt is beautiful, Cottonreel.
What's up with all the "Templates by Tenille" I see in your header picture?

You really are in a pickle.
Sorry, Cottonreel I don't know what to tell you to correct your problem. Have you forgotten to delete everything that is attached to the template you were using?

I don't know if you still read comments a year later, but here goes: First, I love your interpretation! I did a practice block this weekend and it was so hard...but I'm a beginner. I used white in the corners and I'm glad to see in your picture that it looks great. Did you use a larger block size? If so, how much did you enlarge it? I'm intimidated by the small block size as I want to make a bed-size quilt.
