The two quilts use the same pattern, same layout, but I exchanged the darks and lights. I wouldn't have believed it without seeing it.

These are two of the four graduation quilts that I made for my son's friends and a niece. The boy's quilts are modified Yellow Brick Roads with outdoorsy fabrics.

They both look very nice, though I think I'd vote for the blue one, I like the lighter patches it in! :)

If I hadn't seen them side by side and been told they were the same pattern, I'd nver believe it! Wow! Great colors but I like the blue-green one best.

Those are too cool but I like the blue one just seems to pop where the green disappears like it's suppose too. Great job.

Love the green!!! I have heard this pattern called "Tossed Nines", and never saw it neatly lined up - I saw the squares turned every which way, which makes it look very contemporary and "tossed". I am just finishing one of those in "ocean" colors - blues, turquoise, sand, shells print. When it's finished I'll post a picture.
