A few weeks ago, Cassidy asked me if I had a quilt top finished that would work for Justin. We went through my (rather large) stack and she immediately said this is the one....
This is the quilt that I did for the Virtual Quilting Bee that was hosted by Diary of a Quilter a while back. The blocks finished rather small for me so I marinated on it for a while and decided to add the star surround from another quilt along I'd been doing (Star Surround by Happy Quilting).
To make this quilt I used the fabrics (Strawberry Lemonade by Me and My Sisters) leftover from another quilt that Cassidy claimed, so she and Justin have matching quilts.
I backed it with this baby blue bubbles fabric that I have in the stash (yes, plenty more still in stash) and quilted it with a clover design for luck. I had Cassidy decide what to put on the label and added it to the corner before binding.
And below is a not all that great pic of the girls graduation night, Cassidy on the left and Justin on the right. So proud of these wonderful young women!!
I couldn't be prouder! They both graduated with honors and head off to different sides of the state in the Fall (and being in Texas, that's saying something). But they will always be close and I look forward to watching them succeed in the future.
Today I'm linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday, Fabric Frenzy at Ft Worth Fabric Studio, Can I Get a Whoop Whoop at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, WIP's Be Gone at A Quilting Readers Garden, TGIFF at Quilt Matters, and Link a Finish Friday at Richard and Tanya Quilts.
