Birthday Prezzie for Jane

Just finished this today - will get it and everything else for Dad and Jane boxed up and sent tomorrow or Tuesday. This quilt is for Janie's 60th birthday. As I was making it, for some reason I wanted to call it Red Hot Chili Baby. Maybe Jane would like that name?!

The colors look so washed out here - believe me, it's much more intense in the live fabric. There are a couple of firsts for me with this quilt - free-motion quilting in something other than a stipple (there are lightning bolts on the orange borders, and echo quilting around the animals and hunters on the bottom), and a beaded fringe (!). It measures about 18 x 24".
