    Stack and Whack graduation gift

    I made this for a super guy for graduation. I quilted this on my new HQ Sweet Sixteen. Bought the fabric at Walmart. I also gave him money in a card. Don't figure a high school boy would get too excited about a quilt but he acted as though he really liked it.

    It's a great Stack and Whack! I just love all the patterns that come from one fabric.

    I really like it, he probably likes it to because it's a really nice quilt.
    Create something beautiful from scraps.

    I am working on one now with similar colors and I want to put it together with black sashing. May I ask how bit the blocks were? Also, what size was the finished quilt? I would appreciate your help. I have 30 blocks but only finishing 8"
    and I will have to be creative I think to get a queen-sized quilt.

    Those colors really pop in the outdoor light. He hopefully will treasure this always. What a wonderful gift.

    You certainly put a lot of work into it. I like the black with brights for a male. I'm sure he'll treasure more than you know. Peggy

    I think quilts make great high school graduation gifts. They will come in handy for snuggling on their extra long twin beds when they are up all night cramming for semester exams next winter!!

    Of course he liked the quilt. It is 'GUY' colors and wild pattern. Can I borrow this idea? I have done a stack and whack and I really like your choices of fabrics. Thanks for showing your quilt.
