It's actually pretty close to accurate even though it looks really strong next to the grey, and the texture is fantastic.
I've fallen in love with the backing fabric again, I use a piece big enough for the backing as my clean up cloth. This is the method Sue showed me in geelong, only I use it as the cloth for the whole project so the colours are the ones from the quilt top.
So it's all together now and I'll hopefully get a chance to start quilting it tomorrow night. I'll do the watch and band the same way I did the boots and poppies, and attach it once the base is done.
