    Graduation quilt for my niece!

    I made this quilt for my niece for her graduation from college with a bachelor degree in mechanical engineering! She loves peace signs and vw beetle bugs, she drives a lime green one. I would have liked to hand quilt it but just didn't have the time as graduation was only a few weeks away, I SITD for the main part of the quilt. My son hand drew a couple of stencils for me and I hand quilted with lime green thread a peace sign on each of the brown squares and a vw beetle on the white squares, unfortunately I forgot to take an upclose picture of the quilting and it doesn't show up in these pictures.
    The last picture is my niece Andrea with her new quilt!

    It's beautiful, and I love your fabrics. What's really important tho, is it looks like your niece loves it as well.
