Alex's quilt

I miscalculated a little on the borders inside.  That's what happens when you make a quilt from outside in.. then you have to work out the gap between the centre and the borders.  Eeek.

/So now I'll have to add a thin strip of black as well.  The centre border fabric is Alex's choice.. He really wanted a black quilt but I'm improvised since it is really keen on rugby.  Most of the jerseys belong to NZ provincial clubs.  The ones in the centre are Alex's ripper rugby colours, All Blacks and his Grandad's jersey (No 4). 

Off to pick up Mum today and bring her back to Wellington to fly to my sisters tomorrow in Nelson for the holidays.  Catch up later

Dear Karen,
Alex' Quilt looks absolutely stunning, I love this choice of black and white fabrics mixed with a little bit of colour! You've done a great job!!!
Take care, Martina

I love the manquilt - rugby jerseys are a good idea they might like in Arohata - we are always on the lookout for new ideas.
Sorry to hear you have health problems and good luck with the shedding weight, something I need to do after several months of indulgence!
