My quilt top is finally done. I even managed to get a blue border around the outside. Once quilted I will bind it with the darker material. Yes it's true I almost didn't do this quilt.

Such as the death of my dear nephew at too early an age and the news that my dad is close to ending his battle with Alzheimer's.
