Doors out of the Darkness

Today I pulled out this top from last year and got it completely layered, pinned, quilted, l;abelled and bound before 2:00. I call it "Doors out of the Darkness", and I made a top of the opposite coloration at the same time. Another UFO or WISP (Work In Slow Progress).

I quilted wavy parallel lines in the blocks, then various rough circles in the border. [I had had only two of the dots of circles for the corners.]

Oh, and I used a bright red polka dot for the backing so it wouldn't be too dark for a baby, since this will go in our Guild's collection for the Neonatal Unit at our regional hospital.

May Britt, this is my UFO/WISP finish for February! Now I need to make another finish for March, since we are going to Florida for that whole month.
