My nephew Will at Tulane on move in day. Can’t believe this was August of 2014. He goes back to school in a week. Hope his quilt will continue to keep him warm and cozy!
My wonderful nephew, Will graduated from high school this year. He earned a full-ride to Tulane in New Orleans. So proud of the young man he has become. Back in the spring I offered to make him a quilt for graduation. My son Andrew gave me specific instructions on how big it should be–long enough to tuck under your feet and still pull up under your chin. So off to Jackman’s Fabrics to shop.
I pulled out my stash of small white bags and put one or 2 styles in each. I then pinned a scrap to the outside and hung them on my tool rack. It worked perfectly! I could stay organized and use the scraps easily. I will definitely try this again!
I was able to get the quilt pieced in time for Will’s graduation party over 4th of July weekend–good thing I took the previous week of work off. I think I spent 4 wonderful days in my sewing room working on it.
I took it to the quilters 2 weeks ago and it is back. Pictures coming.
I sure wish I had more free motion quilting confidence. It would have been so fun to do some fun designs on this quilt. I was with it a long time before jumping in. I had this past week off and knew it was now or never–besides, the shower is a few days away.
I chose lots of straight lines and a little curve for the flower blocks.
Time to make a label for Miss Scarlett Rose
