Just thought I would share this quilt I made for my daughter’s graduation party. Beth brought it back all bound and ready to go.
I thought a little momento of her graduation would be nice. This is a first milestone for her….where she followed through with something….even though Rob and I had to drag her to do it…but I digress.
I took a panel of labels and I ironed on a stabilizer ( like what you use for T-shirt quilts) so it would make the fabric a bit stiffer. I wanted to have it ready so it could just go with her when she moves….which will be right after her grad party. Then I added the top part and a border. I fused on her initials and the initials of her school…none of these are her school colors. I thought she would like it more if we didn’t make them black and orange (tigers). Then I quilted around all of the “labels” and her picture…I also outlined the fused letters while on the long arm…so I didn’t have to sew them down.
For the back I found this cute graduation cap fabric.
Now it’s ready to go…I will just provide some fabric pens..so people can sign it or write scripture for her future.
Quick easy project and a forever keepsake.
