Finished this tonight.

Let me start by saying that I am a die-hard Redskins fan - through and through, good seasons and bad. So, I hate the Cowboys. A friend at work, however is a diehard Cowboys fan - he's even from Dallas - and so is his wife, who just had a baby boy. Other than the obvious character flaw of being Dallas fans, they are very nice people and I wanted to do something nice for them to celebrate the birth of their son. I also thought it would be fun to play up our rivalry.

Here it is.

I swear that having this awful Cowboys fabric in my house over the last couple months is the reason our season went so downhill.... I should have snuck in some burgundy and gold somewhere.

I like the back much better than the front!

Great quilt and a very good sport to do the Cowboy quilt. They will love it, especially from you the Redskin fan.

Thanks everyone - maybe I'll make a Redskins lap quilt for my dad now to help balance out the universe again!
