This one was a tough one for me! Nothing about it on it's own is hard or too challenging, but the combo of thick flannels, on the bias and border prints made it a wee bit frustrating.
Ok.. the quilt-


The border.... 


close up of the quilting- I think I need some help on how to photograph this better-


and the overall quilting.  I like the desigh but wish it had more of a melon wedge shape- more oval, not circle.

I did learn on this that washing helps a lot in hiding all the unevenness and what I see as a big mistake isn't so noticable to everyone else.  it's a great quilt for the basement.... very warm and cuddly and all the teenage boys that come over to play xbox seem to like it Smiley

Yes, after a few washes you will start to see a change in the quilt, in a good way.
