    Graduation quilt for DGD

    Finished the binding this morning and ran it through the washer and dryer. She graduates tomorrow. It would have been done sooner, but I had problems with my LA and had trouble getting any help over the long weekend. I tried free-hand curls on the border. They don't look as good as Charisma's, LOL, but I think my DGD will be happy with it. This was a free pattern I got from one of the magazines I used to take and I thought it was really pretty. Now to find a gift bag large enough to get it in!

    The first one is not the same quilt! I don't know how to delete it, so I corrected it down below.

    Beautiful color choices. So soft and inviting and I like the mortar board on the label. I'm sure your grand daughter will be thrilled. Thanks for sharing.
