    I finished the bindings today. Both were machine quilted by someone else.

    Mandy's family is from China--Red is a happy color in their culture so that's why I chose it for her quilt.

    My grandson requested camo fabrics. I ended up making a sampler quilt for him.

    A second grandson's grad quilt. I did all the work on this one, quilting it on my regular sewing machine.

    Thank you all. I think it is 4 years before the next H.S. graduation. Do have a college graduation coming up in a year. I love making the quilts and am glad to have kids and grandkids to give them to! (As well as sisters.)

    It is called the friendship star. It actually has a number of different names. It is very easy to do with the have square triangles.

    Beautiful!! I love them all. My fav is the blue, the pattern is very interesting. My next project will need to be a red, white and blue for my niece. No idea on the pattern, tho.

    Rachel - I recognize the friendship star but it is how it is put together that is so unique. Did you design that yourself? If it was from a book, I'd appreciate the title. Thanks much. I REALLY like it!

    It is "Ribbon Quilt Block" -- a freebie fromQuilters Cache.
    http://www.quilterscache.com/P_R/RibbonQuiltBlock.html

    I see an August 2006 date on my pattern sheet, but I suspect it is still on their website. RM

    It is a freebie from Quilters Cache website. You'll find it under the 12" blocks, "Ribbon Quilt Block". I sent this message once with the link, but when I tried the link it didn't work, but the site it there. Just google for QuiltersCache.com.
    Happy Quilting
