I'm getting excited. Several months ago I decided to make a quilt for our oldest granddaughter — as a gift for when she graduates from high school in June.
I found a sampler pattern and some fabric I like and have been making squares here and there along the way. It's a personal, lap-size quilt rather than a bed-size, but, the lap-size seems right for someone to wrap up in, and feel the love, as they head off to college or branch out in other ways after high school.
I only have 5 more squares to complete and will be focusing on finishing them this next week. Then I'll add the sashing. Very excited to see the final product.
I'll post pics soon of the assembled quilt top. Then (sometime in May) I can show off the completed quilt before I wrap and mail it.
This has been a real labor of love.
