Default Grandaughter's Graduation Quilt

Enlarged a UFO and was able to get a double width batik at Joann's in just the right shade of blue to compliment the batik pieced top (no pattern) one which I've posted here before. Fortunately I enjoy every aspect of quilt making and I love to work under pressure it seems because I totally enjoyed this project.. Quilted it w few feathers but mostly stippling to finish it on time. Had ample fabric from the double sided batik for the binding and I was done. Now the label had to be extra special for my first born granddaughter of course. I ordered a cap and year embroider file from Etsy and incorporated on the applique quilt label.
Thank you for looking.

I'm sure she will love it. The colors are great and I like the way you incorporated the graduation year into the label.
