String of Pearls

This quilt is on my July Finishing Goal and #1 on Finish Along Q3 list. I am so glad I chose to get it quilted rather than quilt it myself on my machine with that tiny throat space. I made this quilt top as part of  QAL @ Christa's Quilts in which she used the pearl bracelet fabrics and hence the name. Well I just couldn't come up with a better name so the 'String of Pearls' stands.
The String of Pearls quilt gifted to my daughter. 
Pieced Back of the quilt. I really liked the way it turned out. Looks like it could be the top as well. Not a clear photo though.
Beautifully quilted by Carole Staples on her long-arm machine.

That is a beautiful quilt Jereena! I love all the colors set in the black background! The back is intriguing too, especially with the light shining through it.

I love the grey background as it makes all the other colours jewel like. I bet your daughter is thrilled!

What a pretty finish. I am sure it will be well loved. My July goal got pinned but not quilted. Nice job on meeting your goal.

Your daughter is sew lucky! What a gorgeous quilt, Jereena! Yes, this large quilt and your little machine would have meant hours of struggling. Longarm quilting was a good call. Looks beautiful!
