January's GIft

Yes I know I'm a bit late with this one. I finished it yesterday.

This is a quilt made from a cheaters panel that I put three borders on.
It's for Betty an 80 something neighbour of my FIL's. When my FIL was widowed quite a few years ago Betty decided that he needed loooking after. So everytime she bakes she sends over some cakes. Her husband shsares a love of gardening with my FIL so they swap plants and seeds.
Some years ago I made a quilt for my FIL which he drapes over his couch. Betty has been admiring this for some time so I decided to make a quilt for her.
I'm not going to wait until Christmas to give this to her because of her age. Once it's washed and dried I'll give it to her. Probably on the weekend.
To finish the post some close ups of the quilting.

On to February's now. Not sure what that'll be yet.
