January UFO...Finished






yay...go me !
Dads healing quilt is finished.
I'm quite pleased with the end result.
I quilted each section with matching thread and so with the white backing you can see the lines of different colours.
Its washed, dried and waiting for those pesky threads to be removed.
Dad is picking it up tonight.

**edit**
Its 76 x 76 inches so it can sit on top of his King size bed
He has just informed me for fathers day he would like a matching sofa size quilt!!!!

  5. It is beautiful and the back is pretty, too. He must be impressed with your quilting sice he wants another one for the couch. That is the ultimate compliment! You did a great job.
