My FIRST commisioned quilt !

Did that sound fancy....I'm really not some elite quilter and got this fantastic commission for a quilt. Nope I'm just me....and a childhood friend asked me to make it for her 3 year old grandson....I was nervous and also excited to get started. So I posted the beginning of this quilt a while back in September and wanted to show you the finished product.
It is my first I - SPY quilt and my first commisioned quilt !!!  YIKES !

If you know me you know my backs are never boring....
My Sister says she almost always likes the backs better than the fronts.
This is a Wonky Back I was trying to make it look like WONKY PIPES !
I used the Dinosaur uproar and Leapin Lizards collections for the back
I just love the binding I believe it is from the Dinosaur Uproar line
