    Wanted to share the final results of a quilt I made for my daughter who graduated this year from HS. She had a great 4 seasons of field hockey and will go on to play in college. The design was in my head but really came together as I made the top. My original plan is not even close to what the final was! I machine quilted with stitch in the ditch for the blocks and stippled/echo on the pictures to highlight the detail. Hope you enjoy! Now, on to the next project!

    Thanks for the feedback everyone. She really does love it and was surprised at how many pictures from the newspaper I put in. I printed all of them on "printed Treasures" and found that the price was well worth it! The colors are a reflection of her school colors, orange, brown and white. I pulled in yellows and other tones from my scraps.
