I'm not sure how copyright works here....so I want to get this out of the way first. I'm pretty sure that Stairway To Heaven is a public domain pattern as it's been around forever. I used a simple cross hatch, but it only went one direction. I did use Borders Made Easy. It's a cheater paper you put on borders so you can quilt cool lines on it. I loved it and if I can use it, anybody can. It did make my borders easy. I hope that gives all the credit due. Now, for the pics.
Here is the top:
And the backing:

Close up of the top corner. You can see the quilt lines and the border paper:

All that's left is the delivery pictures, we'll have to wait until he gets here for that!!
Great project! I'm sure it will be really appreciated. And thanks for the recommendation for the borders. I've never used them.
