A WIP is finished!!!!!

I am a bad blogger, I know this fact and I am a last minute person too.
I have had this sitting around as a flimsy for about 2 years and I needed a quilt to donate for our footy club promise Auction.
So I got it out, sandwiched it up, quilted and bound it.
I did straight line quilting in a kind of chevron pattern, it started out as a vague idea but I was really happy with the end result, it kind of grew into itself as it stitched.
It is quilting fabrics from the bargain bin at Spotlight but they are pretty and go together.
It was purchased by one of the young players for his mum on auction night.
I asked him "what are you going to do with it?"
He Replied "mum asked for a quilt for her birthday"   how sweet.
It's funny really, his dad bought the one I put up last year and it went to Sandy also, she does love her quilts I think.
