Union Jack - Graduation Quilt Finish

Do yall remember the Union Jack quilt top I finished?

Well, I finally got it quilted, just in time for Cassidy's graduation!  She graduated from Churchill High School so it is the perfect quilt for her.  And with the non-traditional colors, it should carry her for many years to come.

I love the way it turned out!

I quilted it with an all-over clover pattern for luck...

And bound it with leftover 2-1/2" strips of fabric from the top.  The backing is this gorgeous fabric by Wyndham that I got a few months back from Massdrop...

Don't you just love it?!?!  I keep trying to tell Cassidy that it's way too big for her and I'll just keep it for her but she's not going for it.

I love the colors you used, and I'm not sure I would be nice enough to give it away.

Beautiful quilt for a beautiful graduate! I am a slacker. I have the fabric, but have yet to start my new grad's quilt. I need to get on the ball. Goal now is to have it done by the time she heads off to college...eeekk! Not much time left...

What a neat graduation gift! I sure understand why you're not allowed to keep it. Love the back, too. All those fun color words!
