Quilt

I just finished a quilt I've been working on. It is a present for my father-in-law. He gave me a quilt top that his grandmother had done and asked me to finish it. That was about 2 years ago, so I just now got around to finishing it. I love working on old quilts. There is always so much history in them. He was telling me how he remembered some of the fabric in the quilt was a dress his grandmother used to wear.

It was a little challenging because part of the quilt was uneven, but I think I balanced it out pretty well. I am very pleased with how it turned out. Usually I'll sit and pick out all the problems with a finished project, but not this one. It turned out great!
