I'm entering this quilt into Amy's quilt festival.
A VERY. Scrappy. Quilt.
For a deserving Graduate!
This quilt incorporates lots of blue strips.
I had quite an overload of BLUE!
And I'm afraid this quilt did not
put a dent in the scrap pile!
This quilt represents my beginnings as a quilter.
I've been heading up the making of quilts
for high school seniors at my little church
for about 15 years.
When we began....
Our quilts were VERY simple.
Just 6" squares sewn together.
The squares for this quilt were made here
on a Saturday morning by anyone who wanted to help.
I incorporated the blocks into a quilt!!!
The back is kind of funky and fun.
I absolutely LOVE giving these away each year!
Some years we have 2 or 3 graduates.
Last year I think we had SEVEN!
This quilt is ready now for graduation!....
And a college dorm!.....
And a summertime picnic!....
