Marmalade Grey Quilt

I am addicted to texture.
...and still trying to find the right way to photograph a quilt with texture.
This was an older quilt top I finished awhile back and never had the courage nor the skills to quilt it as I would like.    It's just a small one,  a pattern I made up on my own. 
I call her marmalade grey...because marmalade has all of those chunky bits in it to give it texture...
 
 There really wasn't much of a plan,  I just wanted to do something that had symmetry and a lot of texture in it.   I especially wanted those little yellow sashings to sing. 

A note:  I used a 100% cotton sheet from Ikea for the backing.  Like I had read and had been warned about...tension on the back is sometimes an issue with sheets because of the tight weave.  I did experience this, but wouldn't completely stay away from doing it again either.
