And here's a close up of some of the quilting:
I was aiming for a masculine look since this is for my nephew and I think I managed to achieve it. I didn't want to distract from the border so it got quilted with just a simple piano key. The rest of the quilt is just swirls. I probably could have been more creative in the quilting but a) it's for a 20 year old college kid and b) it's for a guy -- I seriously doubt he will notice the quilting.
I also realize that I neglected to post a picture of the finished Christmas Lights mystery. So, without further ado, here it is:
I know, you really can't see the quilt well laid out on the bed but it will have to do. I simply don't have a good place to hang quilts to take decent pics of them. Hhhhmmm, I think we need to work on that.
Meanwhile, here's a pic of The Spotted One using The Bearded One's knee as a pillow:
Next up, that darn QB Christmas Challenge. But, I even made some progress on that this weekend so I'm close to finishing that top. And THEN I can start on my red & white snowball challenge. Yes, I caved. I can't believe it. Another new project is the LAST thing I need....Hear that Ms. Shel -- no, no, no! Absolutely NO Jacob's Coat!!! So stop tempting me...I.Have.NO.Willpower. Must not start, must not start, must not....
