The Commissioned Quilt.

The top's done... phew....16 hours to make the centre, 3 hours to prepare the borders, add theborders... piece the backing and iron everything ready for a sandwich... not bad... but then if we add the hours and hours of rooting and rummaging, deciding and mind changing.... OK let's not... lets just say 20 hours to make the top... I'll try to make a sandwich at the Quilt Cave tomorrow, the quilting won't take long as the design is a 'known'... there's no mind changing to deal with!
This is the backing fabric... I defy anyone not to smile when they turn to the back of a quilt to find something fun like this...
