    These are two quilts I have made in the last couple weeks. The graduation quilt is for my boyfriend's cousin who just graduated high school. It is a Trip Around The World and is backed with fleece. He really liked it and so did I. The border is fishing themed. The Wedding quilt is for my little sister who is getting married this weekend. I am really happy with the way it turned out. However, I was unhappy with how small it turned out to be. I did not measure correctly and didn't have enough fabric to make it any larger. It is still big enough to sit on the couch with though. And I am sure I will be making her another one in the future. Her wedding colors are kelly green and zebra print. I bought the fabric before I knew her exact color green, but I am sure she will like it. The pattern for hers is a pinwheel, but it's a little hard to see without sashing between the rows.

    Please disregard my legs in the picture. :oops:

    The green and zebra is a lot of fun. It'll brighten up any room.

    The couple getting this quilt must be really fun couple. This was truly not what I was expecting for a wedding quilt. Great quilt design and they must really love the border!

    Yes, they are a young couple. They are only 20 years old. The colors for the wedding were Kelly green and touches of zebra print! Their wedding was yesterday, they haven't opened their gift yet, but I'm sure they will like it.
