    This is the quilt I made for my youngest daughter's graduation. It is the Tilt-a-Whirl by Connecting Threads. It is also the first quilt that I completed on my Bailey 17 long arm machine. Lots of beginner's errors in the quilting but over all I am happy with the result. My daughter took this to school with her and had all of her friends and teachers autograph it.

    That is so cute and something very special for your daughter. The signatures make it extra special. Congratulations to the graduate and may God bless her in the next chapter of her life.

    Thank you all for the nice compliments. My daughter likes it very much, she loves bright colors. She attends a rural high school so there aren't a lot of signatures on it but we plan to hang it during her graduation party so that family and friends who come can sign it also. She is planning to take it to college with her. I guess the carousel horse quilt that I made her when she was six will be retired now ;)
