the future's so bright quilt


Made for a friend who just graduated from high school.
Her personality matches the colors in this quilt.
(I finished the quilt about a half hour before the party started.)
Thanks to all of you who cheered me on as I raced to complete this.

I love it! It is just beautiful. So bright and cheery. I love that it is ageless; I mean that it is perfect for a new high school graduate, but it will be just as perfect for her when she is a young professional, a new mom, a not-so-new mom, a grandmother. What a great gift!

Robyn said...

I am so in awe of this quilt. I've never made one before, don't know if I have the time or stamina for it, but if I did make one, I think I'd like to do something like this. It is beautiful. There is so much to it, yet there is a simplicity about it. I'm sure the new graduate will love it.

Linda said...

I love it! I love how the white just makes the colors pop! You are phenomenal for getting this done so quickly! I'm sure your friend will love it. I can't wait to see some of the other block swap quilts! Needless to say you are the first across the finish line with this one!
