A Quilt!

 I made this quilt for Neville's 50th birthday. 
It was made for the back of his couch. I didn't have the measurements of his couch but it fitted perfectly.
 I had thought about adding a green border but decided against it. If I had, it would have been too big 
to fit across the back.
 When I got the fabulous invite, I knew I had 
to use part of it for the label.
So, a prior sneak peek is finally revealed!
