Finished the quilt for my DH Grandmother

So my Husbands Grandmother lives in Florida and my Father-in-law takes a drive down every year around her birthday and stays for a few weeks. Well she will be 91 this year and I thought...what could I make for her for her birthday...why not a quilt! She is so sweet, ever time she called my Mother-in-law she always ask how I am doing. The handful of times I spent time with her, when she could still travel, we just clicked. She so reminded me of my own grandmother. Little Italian grandma...not even 5 feet tall. Oh man she makes the best lasagna! So I went through all the patterns I have on my computer and came up with one to make for her. It's called Scruffly Quilt by Rachel Griffith from Moda Back Shop. Let me know what you think?

OK next time I make a quilt I am going to remember to take pictures as I go. I always forget until I am done...lol
