Default Happy Hannukah!

Long story short....my bff finally decided she wants to learn to quilt. We shopped for fabric last Feb while on vacation-her son was newly engaged to a sweetie who celebrates Hannukah. She spotted these fabrics and fell in love with them. We designed an easy pattern, and worked on basic skills. Halfway through, she was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis affecting her hands and treatments are still not effective. I offered to finish this quilt for her so she can gift it, but we may be a few days late! It needs to be shipped...I think she did great for her first project!
It really does lay flat! Not sure why it looks so wonky in the pic!

Well done - not sure what part you see as "wonky" - it looks good to me.
