    My daughter graduates from cosmetology school tomorrow. Got her quilt finished today. Nothing like working right up to the deadline.... I posted the top when I finished it, but love the binding and the backing. Just thought I'd share.

    How Sweet!! My sister is a stylist and she just loved your quilt when I sent her a pic. Now she wants to know how come I never made her one when she graduated. I had to remind her that was 30+ years ago hahahaha I didn't know how to quilt then :mrgreen:

    Has she seen it yet or is it a surprise. It is great and she is going to love it. I can see her wanting to hang it on the wall in her shop but also wanting to snuggle in it at home too. So sweet of you to do this for her. I really like it.

    Very nice. I like the unique fabric you used. But, my favorite is the purple fabric in the border. I can picture that fabric in different colors.
    Good job.
