Somehow I didn't think loads of solid white with bright fabrics involving polka dots and/or birds (kinda sums up a lot of the my stash...) was gonna fly for my father. And there's actually no white in this - the light color is a light grey - Ash.
Another shot of it.
This is the first time I've ever put a border on a quilt. I'll be honest. I didn't initially picture it with one but I just could. not. make. one. more. block. I love the results of all solids, but they don't make for exciting piecing. But I do really like the border in the end. And my father loved the quilt!
