This is my first finish of 2016.

I put th blocks together from round 8 of the quilt block swap and sashed them with a thin black sashing. And binding.

I gave this to a friend and coworker who got married this fall. He is from Cuba and the colours remind n so much of his personality

Oh sloth that turned out so pretty!  So glad to have been a part of a gift that will be cherished by a new couple! Great work as always, loving the smaller sashing!
