    I made this quilt for my daughter who is graduating in June. She graduates on her 19th birthday. I am so proud of her. She is going on to college to become a nurse. I had never made a quilt bigger than a lap or baby quilt. This one is still small compared to others I have seen. But it is the biggest one I have ever attempted. Thank to clynns for helping me out even if I ended up changing the pattern so I could get it done in time. lol I will do the blocks the way she told me and make another quilt someday. I was able to do them. But it just took me forever and I need more practice. But I thought I would share it. I really like how it turned out.

    Hard to get a pic of the whole quilt. lol

    Your quilt is beautiful and you did a great job! Love the pattern and can't imagine that there is something more difficult to do on this quilt. It looks beyond my skills.
