Ina's Quilt Finished!

Well, I've finally finished Ina's Christmas quilt! I actually started another quilt for her, it was a floral pinwheel, but the pinwheels were very small and I knew there was no way I was going to get it done on time. So I decided to make this quilt instead.

I chose colors that were a bit more 'Christmas-y' but I don't know if she will like it. I almost forgot to take a picture, so this one is a bit rushed. The back is made from some large floral fabrics that I had in my stash. I had purchased them for her quilt when they went on sale. They went better with her last topthan with this top. Usually I don't try to get the back to match the front, but my MIL will be very concerned with this.

This is a great quilt! And the back is too. I don't think it looks so Christmas-y that she couldn't use it all year too. She'll love it! Wow, I'm impressed that you did a whole quilt so quickly.
