Xmas gift quilt

These will be the only sneak peeps at the Christmas gift I have just completed!! The back!!

I used my quilt frame to freehand star and swirl meander. I like the effect that the blue/grey variegated thread looks on the cream/tan background!!
Saturday night I put the borders on, then done the quilting - while Dennis was on night shift!! Didn't take long really - only afew hours!! Then last night and today sewed the binding on and label!! I am very happy with the way it looks, and I reckon the recipient will be pleased!!
So, who is this for?? Cant say LOL!!
Hope you are having a great day today - the first for December!!
x Sarah
