Graduation Quilt

It's June already and that means graduation season for many!  One of my best friends, from work, has a sweet daughter who has become near and dear to me through the years. 

Savannah's quilt
I pieced this one together without a pattern... one of those things I tell myself to never do again!  It all starts out well and then proves to be a challenge by the end. 

Here is the pretty girl opening her quilt.  Her first question:  did you make this all by yourself?  She's too cute.

This is me with the sweet graduate.  Her mom rented the local Bed and Breakfast in town for her graduation party.  I was excited to go, not only to celebrate the graduate, but to see and tour  the large home.  I have always dreamed of having a large old farm house to restore and live in, and still think I would love it.........  But after seeing all the large rooms in this house, all I could think about was having to clean it!!!

A beautiful girl and a beautiful quilt! And I'm with you - I'd love to have a big old farmhouse but only if it comes with a built in housekeeper. :) blessings, marlene

Hi Pen Pen,
Beautiful quilt. I can fold them and put them on display, but making them is another story.
Love your outfit and what a nice gift!

Beautiful Quilt! I know Savannah will treasure it. I like the idea of living in a farmhouse, but I agree too much to clean. My dreams are to own my own bookstore and live on a horse ranch (even though I have never ridden a horse). LOL It is nice to dream though. Love you!
