A high school graduation quilt – so what if she’s already starting college? It’s the thought that counts. We’ve known and sailed with Shelby Hatcher for many years and were delighted she could spend a few days with us shortly after Christmas – that’s when we gave her this gift. She was thrilled and she even used it that night on her bed. But – silly me, I didn’t take a picture of her with the quilt using my camera. So, I’m going to provide an ‘in process’ picture and one that she sent me (seems her cat likes the quilt too). Those white tags on the quilt are just block numbers so I’d be sure to sew them in the correct order.
Her mother gave me some suggestions on fabric colors. So what colors do you choose when the recipients favorite color is camo? She’s an ‘earth’ girl so I tried to select those colors. The fabric is a called batik and also seems to suit her personality. The quilting design looks like wind so that fit the earth theme and because she’s a sailor.
