Memory Quilt #3

Last weekend, I finished another memory quilt made from my father's shirts.  I've shared the first two quilts here and here.
This quilt is for one of my sons, so I tried to keep things simple:  a medallion center with plain fabric and zig-zag borders.

I'm very happy with the way the zig-zag border came out.  Sewing the half-square triangles together in correct order took a little concentration, but the result was worth it!

The outer fabric border features fish, again echoing my dad's love of fishing.

I'll be dropping the quilt top off at the long-arm quilter's next week.  It will be interesting to see what Cindy comes up with for this quilt!
