    Every year my Mom and Step Dad come out for vacation. While they're here, my SD will do anything around the house that I can't for us. (my DH is disabled) It just so happens that they'll be here this year on Sunday, Father's Day, so I made him this lap quilt.
    I hope he likes it.

    Grand!
    And so clever to use the extra blocks on the backing!
    Good job!

    I'm sure your SD liked or will like the quilt. I like that you put blocks that match the front on the back. I like to do that with extra blocks. It really ties the whole thing together. I hope you included a label with 'who made this quilt for whom and when.'
