    Thinking outside the box, graduation quilt and pillowcase

    I just finished this THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX quilt for my grandson, for his Christmas/graduation gift. From scraps and trial blocks, I put together the pillowcase. One side to show blocks and the other side to sleep on. I do my own quilting, basically SID, and just did the curve and other odd shape. I forgot to post tags on each picture, and going back to do that, I couldn't find where, so I will just post this way. Sorry.

    I love the pattern and what you did with it. It is simply gorgeous and your quilting makes the quilt. All of your projects here are great. Thank you for sharing.
