Progress - I should finish in time!

The secret quilt for my brother is coming along nicely.  I have managed to get it almost all quilted.  I do this in sections.  There are three sections and I have two of them fully quilted.  The last one is half quilted. Thirty minutes more should see it quilted.  I am not doing any "fancy" quilting.  Just simple lines with deep organic waves.  They are not planned to be even waves.  I am working around the embroidery designs.
In the above pic you can see that part (bottom left) that is yet unquilted.  
Both the red and brown/cream fabrics are from Dad's shirts. 

Here you can see that I worked around the embroidery designs.  I tried to get in between words so that it is quilted somewhat evenly. 

Once I finish the quilting, I will join the three sections and then bind it.
I hope to have this completed in time for the surprise party - shhh....don't tell him!

Trying to catch up on your blog reminds me I've been away far too long. This is a fabulous quilt, and when I realize you also did the embroidery, I'm really impressed. I think "deep organic waves" are very fancy! Great job.

Your brother is going to love this quilt. I really like your "wave" quilting, it's a perfect match for this quilt.
