Beautiful Graduation Quilt

This quilt was made by a friend for her daughter's graduation gift.
I love the way the colors came together!
She chose just ONE design to be used in each block, so I made a stencil (with dremel tool).

This is the book in which she found the quilting motif.

The next set of pictures show all the different blocks with the same motif, but how amazingly different they all look.  You wouldn't know from just looking that it is the same motif quilted over and over.

In the border is a soft set of leaves, unfortunately, they are almost missed since the thread color blends too well. Maybe a green or something would have added just a slight enough contrast to be seen, but not over powering.

This is such a neat quilt, I saw it at a show last year and was so excited to see someone had made one!
I used a snowflake panto called Winter White.

Beautiful Wallhanging!

Karen made this wonderfully dramatic wallhanging!

These were the neat corners.

The borders were feathered, and the squares just had some continuous curves.

I added some fun feathers in the corners.

Last Year in Review

Well, I started the year off with making a quilt for my 3 year old daughter, Heidi.  This is the kit I purchased when Bill Kerr and Weeks Ringle were at our quilt show in October, 2010.  Unfortunately, I still don't have it quilted!  Hopefully it will get completed soon!

In February our nephew, Jack was born and this
was made for him with love!

Next, I was in need of making a quilt for my booth, selling QuiltCuts...all fans blades were cut in less than 20 minutes! Over 200 cut that quickly!

Now then, my brother and sister-in-law were wanting something to hang over their mantel...they decided upon this quilt!  Looks

Well, I don't have a picture of the last quilt that I pieced, but when it is quilted I will post pictures!  Promise!
Lastly, I don't know if this counts, but our Art Bee had us
 come up with a 3-D block and I made this Fancy Potholder from the Moda Bakeshop! (I will post an actual picture of mine soon!)

So, I guess, all in all I didn't do as bad as I thought, but I am hoping for a full 12 next year!  Good luck to you in all your endevors!
