First Memory Quilt of Dad's Shirts: Completed

    Recently I posted I had started back to work on a quilt I started a year ago.  It's been finished for over a month. 
       I'm sharing the finished quilt.  Please don't judge my machine quilting.  I don't claim to be a pro. It's completed.

***********************
 The backing came from a fitted sheet,
and the batting or filler came from a nice soft mattress cover.
So I only needed to provide thread.

I kept labels and tags intact wherever they appeared.
Actually sometimes, I may have cheated and moved a seam just so I could include the label.
The quilt ran through the labels to help stabilize them more.
