A black and white finish...

I was bound and determined to get this quilt finished last night, so I came home from work, ignored the floor that needed cleaned and the dishes in the sink and got started right away. Here are the large rows I sewed together on Sunday. I got the top finished, then had to decide if I wanted a border or not.
I liked it without the border, but it was just shy of being twin size, so I decided I might as well add a small border so that it would definitely fit a twin. I had this larger floral print in black and white...Conrad liked it so it was a go!
I got it finished and hung for a photo op. It was dark outside, so I will get better pix later. I just couldn't wait!
Guess who is behind the quilt? Smokey has to investigate! After I got this finshed, I worked on a new hexie project for a little while. Hope to get it finished tonight.

My brother-in-law is doing well, thanks to those that expressed concern.

It is beautiful and the border looks wonderful on it.

I've skipped past the "Turning Twenty" patterns till now. I understand why this one caught your attention. I think it's a wonderful version. The sashing adds a fantastic graphic feature to the quilt.
It's a keeper!
Glad to read that your BIL continues to progress.
