It's finally Done


After hours and hours of sweat and blood and tears...oops not really but the hours and hours is right LOL Here is DS A's HS graduation quilt! It is from the book Tradition with a Twist by Blanche Young and it was not terribly hard and I love how it turned out. To me it is very much like Aaron with the happy colors and the great graphic design. The pic is a bit washed out as the blue is more royal and the reds are deeper but that's OK.
It is queen sized for his twin bed...LOL...but he is a big kid and will appreciate the size. Now for the next thing in the UFO pile.
Maybe that mini bear paw that just needs a bit of quilting and binding to get it done. We will see....

What a great quilt - I bet he loves it! Wish I could get one finished. Sigh. Too many UFO's and not enough motivation!

You did a wonderful job. Blanche Young is a local celebrity here. She doesn't get out much any more, but when she does, everyone notices and listens.

Wow what a beautiful version of trip around the world. I love it. Keeping all thatstraight is nothing short of a miracle.

Gorgeous! I had the picture enlarged on my computer screen and looked at it from across the room -- it positively glows!
