Happy Graduation Quilty Gift

It's graduation season!

We have been busy celebrating a bunch of very smart loved ones lately
and
I managed to finish a quilt for one sweet high school graduate.


This is my finish for block 30 in the 

I hadn't quilted it for the hop, but now it's finished and gifted to my niece for her graduation.


I don't have a picture of her with the quilt, but this is even better.
She took time to pose with me after the big ceremony.


We are so proud of her and can't wait to watch her cheer next year in college!
She is so brave to be way up in the air when they make cheerleading pyramids.
I'll take this time to show off a picture of my brother (Madie's dad) too.
I'm so proud of him.  He's such a great dad to 5 kids.


This quilt was made with Tula Pink's All Stars - fitting for our cheerleader don't you think?
The finished size is 55" x 65"

I hope the quilt wraps her in comfort while she is off on her college adventure.


For me, this is another quilt finished for my aunt challenge that was started 
6 years and 5 quilts ago.
I'm really behind on this personal challenge.  I guess I'll aim for graduation quilts for the rest.  That gives me a few years to finish the next one.  lol

A beautiful girl with many happy things in her future, I hope. The quilt looks like a perfect size for wrapping up. I love the two pictures of her with two important people in her life. You are a great aunt!

It looks veru simple and at the same time the pattern seems quite complex
