A Friday Finish!

A coworker asked me to make a quilt for her boyfriend who is
local Police Officer...

So I sent her over to our LQS to choose the Police fabric
that she liked best.  I then dug through my stash and 
paired that up with some blues and grays.  
Heres the end result...

She gave it to him already and he loves it! He even said that
those badges look just like his old badge and his
new badge, so that was fun.
