Christmas Kiss in July

I have a finish! Yeah! The quilt that had been sitting under the cutting table for years and probably would have remained there indefinitely had my dear friend not seen it and wanted it. It is a Christmas quilt so I quilted Holly in the border. And Poinsettias in the blocks.
Now that it is finished I don't dislike it like I used to. I hope my friend will be happy with it.
