My Friday night sewing.

 I got quite alot of sewing done last night on my dad's photo quilt, I'm making this for his 70th birthday which is later in the month.
 Its coming together so well, Here is my grand parents, photo taken over 40 years ago, sadly they are no longer with us.
 The man on the right of this photo is my dad, with him is his best mate. They went to school together so have been friends for 60 odd years, unfortunately his friend died not that long ago.
 Here is mum and dad, I decided to include the label into the quilt.
All blocks done, now I  just need to finish sewing them together and put on a border.

What do you think? I'm sure dad will love it.

Ok I'm going to see what all my other Friday night sewing buddies got up to.
