Amish Bars Quilt

I finally finished hand quilting this quilt. The pattern is Amish Bars. My friend asked for brown and mustard yellow (picture doesn't show the colors well--sorry). The back is a lighter brown, as I wanted the quilting to show. The brown strips are quilted with brown thread, the yellow with a light brown. You can see the quilting patterns in my post on Marking. The quilt is 52 in X 72 in. The strips are 8 in, 3 in, 6 in, 3 in, 8 in, 3 in, 6 in, 3 in, and 8 in.
I tried to show some of the quilting detail. This is the center brown strip.
