Graduation Day Quilt

Posted by on Oct 31, 2014

 

I always love reading all the entries in the Blogger Quilt Festival over at Amy’s Creative Side which is held twice a year in spring and fall. I just love going through all the categories and admire the lovely quilts.

This time around I have decided to show my “Graduation Day Quilt” which I finished earlier this year.  It was made to celebrate a friends of the family’s graduation from

graduation day

I love using ombre fabric and when I first saw the Hole in the Wall quilt pattern   I knew it would be perfect for this quilt. Here is how I did the rows each vertical row was cut from one  width of fabric.

For the quilting I picked a panto called Modern Maze #1  which I think was perfect for the quilt:

I entered this quilt at the San Mateo County fair and was very excited when it won a ribbon and a rosette.

I really need to pack this up and mail it to Denise in Ireland as her graduation was over a year ago! I find it hard to part with it but I will send it to her soon. I promise!
