    I'm a Last Minute Girl

    My granddaughter is having a graduation party in a month. I knew it was coming but I just now decided to make her a graduation quilt. Thank goodness I have one almost ready. The quilt below is a variation of Kekton Wedding by Ann Harmon Datko. It's from the Best of Quilters Newsletter 2007. The original is on-point and I'm also making one like that. I have all the blocks for this one complete so it should be fairly easy to assemble the top and hopefully get it quilted in time. Hope she likes it.

    These are not the actual fabrics. It's scrappy so I just used random fabrics from EQ.

    please update when you finish the quilt with a new picture. Looks to be a great pattern for a scrappy.

    The pattern looks like a great one for a scrappy (which I love). Please share the finished project so we can see how great it came out! Thanks for sharing.

    It's done with 2.5 x 4.5 strips and the blocks finish at 8 inches. I cut up a bunch of strips and intended it for a leaders and enders project. But they were so fun to make that I just kept sewing blocks and ended up with enough for two quilts, one full/queen and this lap quilt. As it turned out I had to buy blue fat quarters in order to have enough variety for the background. I'd like to make another one using a different color for the background strips, maybe various tans or batiks but I'm holding off till my scrap bin gets a lot fuller so maybe I'll have enough actual scraps this time.
