50th Anniversary Quilt

 This quilt was made for Mum & Dad for their 50th Wedding Anniversary.  It's needle-turn applique, hand quilted.  Can't believe I managed to do it.  It was started in a Dianne Johnston workshop.
There are dates embroidered in each of the blocks that are relevant to their lives and names of family and places they've lived embroidered in the leaves on the borders.  Think it took around 2 years to complete.

They're not bad for 90 & 91 yrs of age.  The Aged Care Facility Dad is in put on a spread for Mum & Dad, family & residents.  It was great.
