Graduation quilt.....

Another year, another graduation quilt needed. This year Sally graduates from high school so she is needing a quilt for her graduation present. The good news..... I am almost out of nieces and nephews... just her younger brother is left to graduate in 2 years! Then my 2... but that is a long way off, thank goodness!

Sally has selected blue and yellows.... and a simple zig zag type pattern. She is a no frills type of person. I'll have to get out some paper and colored pencils and see what I can come up with ..... I was thinking of having the values go from light to dark.... but we will see what the paper drawings come up with. I grabbed this lot of fabrics to play with (70% off at Joann's on Sunday!) along with what I have in my stash for her quilt. I think I got 2 yards of each....the yellows are different values even though it did not show in the photo. I know I have another light and medium yellow in my stash to go with this light and dark yellow.

Wish me luck!

I used a crazy mom quilts tutorial for a baby quilt and it was super easy with no HST. http://crazymomquilts.blogspot.com/2013/10/how-to-make-zig-zag-quilt-without_30.html

What about that Leader/Ender Challenge quilt from Bonnie Hunter? That one that was Checkerboards and rails or something like that might be interesting in these colors. Maybe add white for a yellow and white checkerboard and the gradiant blues for the rails. It really popped when Bonnie set it on-point!
