I finally finished this quilt that I started last November. I call it the "Irish flag quilt." It's the last of the three Celtic inspired lap quilts that I made for my brother-in-law to sell for me when he vends at a Celtic festival. His plans keep getting put off, so I've been putting off finishing this quilt. Finally I got tired of having it hanging over me, waiting to be finished, and I tackled the job. (I dislike piecing backing and doing binding, even on a lap quilt.) But it's done. And I'm glad.

Doesn't it looks nice as it "poses" in my gliding rocking chair? I'm pleased with how it turned out.
