    7 years late High School Graduation Quilt

    I finally finished my daughter's High School Graduation Quilt (she's a RN now ). It is machine pieced and hand quilted. I've worked on it off and on for 7 years! I'm so excited to have it completed!

    It's never too late to finish a project. I bet she appreciates it more now, than she would have 7 yrs ago. : )

    What a great quilt for a fine lady. Your hand quilting is beautiful.
