    Second Graduation Quilt Finished.

    The GS getting this one is graduating with a degree that will let him be a park ranger in the state or national forests/parks on the law enforcement end of things. Thus the outdoor silhouettes seemed appropriate.
    He is getting 2 pillowcases and a throw pillow with his quilt. The quilt backing really matches the dark rusty/red on the front of the quilt--the picture makes it much redder than it really is.

    Thanks. My daughter and her fiance fell in love with the fabrics, so I'm going to make their wedding quilt out of the same ones (without the animal pictures!) She wants it done with a log cabin block, set in a diamond pattern. That is next on my list now that the graduation quilts are done!
    God Bless,

    What an appropriate pattern for a Park Ranger and the sham and pillow cases are a bonus! He will definitely need it and use it. It will be a well loved/used gift. I love the silhouettes and your choice of fabrics. Thanks for sharing.
