I am from the East Coast and graduation was always in June (not sure if that is still true however). Here in the Midwest it is in May.
Right now I have to get busy on a small wall hanging for a friend’s son who is graduating in a couple of weeks. It may be late….
In the meantime, I will share pictures of the autograph quilt I made for my granddaughter for her high school graduation last year.
I asked for a list of words that describe her at this point in her life. Using different fonts and word art in Word, I was able to get creative with the layout.
I hope that someday she will look at this and remember the young woman she was and smile.
Once I had the layout I printed it on photo transfer fabric.
Here is a close-up of the fabrics used as well on one of the autographed blocks.
I ironed freezer paper to the back of the white fabric before they were assembled and handed out to friends and family for signing.
Here is a picture of the back and a close-up of the front. I really like the multiple designs that show up in the quilt.
What special events in your life will you be celebrating or remembering?
Enjoy the journey, Jackie
