    Dad's Quilt is done!! :-)

    We went to visit family in NH in October & while there DFIL got me aside & hinted he'd really like one of my quilts, so after finishing the projects I had in progress, I started one for him. My DH had a bit of input as it's for his dad, but I chose the Birds of a Feather design which I really like & the colors of the top. He was a bit displeased because we couldn't find the exact pattern he wanted on the back, but he made due with a flannel we found online. I was going to put roping around the border & just to be different, he chose a chain to go around it. It came out pretty good considering I kept falling asleep while I was trying to finish it & kept going off my lines. I was trying to finish before having another procedure done on my leg.

    It is beautiful.
