I am happy to share some pics I took today at our local state park of the quilt I made to celebrate my great nephew, Hayden’s high school graduation. Hayden and his family have enjoyed camping his entire life, so most of the fabrics I chose have a camping theme, though I did include some fabrics that reflect some of his other interests including bicycling, fishing, and cowboy hats and boots. This is the second time I have had Melissa of Sew Shabby Quilting use her camping quilting pattern on a quilt. (If you’re curious, see my original Camping Quilt). I used Amy Ellis’ Soiree pattern which was well written and easy to sew. The dark blue background is Kona Windsor and the accent triangles are Kona Cadet. I pieced the back of the quilt using one of the wonderful National Parks panels with a border around the panel of tiny camping signs. I’ve never used brown grunge fabric before, but I think it complements the National Parks panel. I threw in a little dark green fabric because I didn’t have enough brown grunge. I had hoped to hand deliver this quilt to Hayden in California next weekend, but that trip has postponed, so I will be sending it off to him on Monday.
