I finished Obsession, complete with its finnicky flange/binding combination over the weekend, and took it and another 3 quilts outside to photograph properly.
I'm still undecided about its final destination. I had thought about it being my contribution to the ALQS3 Art Quilt Swap but am not sure it's arty enough and may make something else.
Above is a close-up of the centre quilting, and below is the a corner of the binding and peeper border/flange - which worked so well I'm nearly finished adding the same to my other quilt.

And here are a couple of details of the McTavishing - click on any image for a closer look. I've just ordered a couple of Karen's books (and a few children's titles) from the Book Deposoitory.

You should keep it and enter it in the show. IT's just beautiful Emma and Simon's input was very worthy!
