Default whew!! borders on - finally

I got the big idea to make my nephew a quilt for his surgery this week. I have done a double wedding ring quilt and this one wore me out much more than that one did!! I don't think I gave myself enough time - but I am getting there. Now I just have to baste and quilt - -- before he goes into surgery on Tuesday

I am posting now because I don't know if I will get a good picture when I give it to him. (please ignore my messy house )

I love how you were so precise in making the plaid match up so well! He will really value this his whole life. Great job auntie!

I really like the way that came out. The red really makes everything pop!
