Graduation Quilt and Acappella

Finally, I am able to start sharing one of the graduation quilts.  The pattern used was modified slightly to use a layer cake.  The graduate is away on her Senior Trip, so I only want to post the piecing -- just in case she is watching.

Designed by:  John Kubiniec
Name:  Modern View, Published in Jan/Feb 2013 McCall's Quilting
Layer Cake:  Fandango, by Kate Spain for Moda

My brightly colored Acappella is all quilted....WHEW!  This one took over a week.  I only have a little time in the morning before work and at night.  I also had to include a little "thinking" time as to how I wanted to quilt it. Once the binding is done, I will formally display.

Designed by:  Jamie Janow Elfert
Pattern:  Acappella for Black Cat Creations

Acappella is stunning! Can't wait to see the full view. Looks like you and your Gammill are best of friends. Great feather quilting! I'm like you... sometimes it takes me longer to figure out WHAT I want to quilt than it actually takes to DO the quilting.
