    Graduation Quilts

    I have two grandsons graduating this spring--one from high school and the other from college. The high school grad wanted a quilt for Okla State Univ where he plans to attend. The college grad is finishing a Wildlife and Park Managements degree, so thought the "woodsy" print was a good choice for him. It came as a kit, but I doubled the original and then added the piano key border to make it bigger. Will be taking these to the quilter as soon as I return to Kansas. Right now I'm helping my sister out in Indiana. Today I have her great granddaughter while she is at the hospital with her daughter (the baby's grandmother is fighting cancer). It has been many years since I took care of a six month old.
    I made these tops using my "new" Featherweight. Sewed like a charm and what a joy to have a small machine to travel with. If I need fancy stitching for anything I use my sister's machine.
