Sudoku Quilt Top Done

I had some time today to put the sashing and borders on the Sudoku quilt, and as of about a half hour ago, the quilt top is done!

This isn't the greatest time of day to take pictures, but they'll have to do, flash and all.

I ended up using a goldish-tan for the sashing.  (Mustard?  Yes, please.  And now I want a hot dog.)  It looks better in real life/natural light.

I wanted to use a stash fabric for the outer border, but I didn't have enough of the one I liked, so a-fabric-shopping I did go.  I intended to buy more of what I had on hand, but naturally there was none of it left in the store.  So I paced up and down and stared at the bolts for a half hour until I finally picked this black with tan-gold leaves.  

It works.  I like it.  Now to see if the Juki's going to fire on all cylinders to quilt this.  The bobbin winder was acting up the last time I went to quilt something.

I think the match is a good one! It sets the blocks off very nicely.
You must wander around the fabric store like I do:)

Beautiful! Nice Asian prints! This looks great P. Have you heard of 12 by 12 Sodoku? It's great for randomizing too!
