Farley's Quilt Finished... Just in the nick of time (again!)

I am very happy with this quilt!



I am so so so so happy that it is now complete!



Sorry the pictures are crap...




But I had to take them inside because it's 8.30 at night, and I'm getting on a plane to Melbourne tomorrow morning, and this is the last chance I will have to take photos of this quilt before I give it to Farley.

The back...




...is navy and as you can see, the quilt has been professionally quilted.  I guess I could have done it myself, with straight line quilting, but there were a few reasons why I didn't:
1.  I didn't want to (I'd had enough)
2.  I had put so much work into the piecing and I wanted the finished result to be as good as possible
3.  That's it really

What do you think?

It cost a fair bit, but I think it was worth it.  Barb Cowan did it (http://www.thequiltconnection.com.au/) and I think she did a fantastic job.  Thanks Barb!

Great idea to get it professionally quilted. Can't believe you had time to get it done! It looks great.

I hope Farley LOVES it! You did an AMAZING job.
