#4 for Carla's friends

It seems like it took me a very long time for this one and when I checked the time on Mabel after I finished, I saw that it was 2 hours of stitching time. Doesn't seem like a lot, but his quilt is only 39 x 53. I loaded it on Friday and played around with threads to get just the right effect and tension. Took some time off yesterday to go visit my daughter and family, and we went to the Uptown Jazz and Blues Festival last night. After a glass of wine, I didn't think I better do any more until today. So, it's finished and I love it!
