Dark and Moody

Today I finished a lovely lap quilt.  I started this one a number of months ago but had to put it aside while my mother was ill.  She passed about 4 weeks ago from Alzheimer.  It was a very difficult time for our family.  I finally felt like picking it back up again a few days ago and it really helped me feel creative again.  
 The fabric is kind of dark and moody but also very pretty.  I machine quilted it in an undulating wave pattern on my home machine.  
The floral, solid and text patterned fabric feels a little modern to me as does the color pallet. I am really loving the overall grey tone.
It is on the large size for a baby blanket.  More like a lap quilt.  So I am not really sure who I will gift it to yet......
