We have been making grad quilts for our HS church kids for many years. The original layout was 30 blocks, 15 to embellish and 15 that were a 4-patch of 9-patch and solids.
This year I only had one to make so I changed up the alt. block a little to lighten up the prints.
I like the nine 9-patch set as an alt block but miss cut so I had to add a coping border. My 'mistake' turned out pretty neat (if I say so myself) and I will remember this for another project.
Also graduating this year is the son of our new Hispanic preacher. Johnathan's mom picked out this top and a fun sheet for the back. Veronica is learning to machine quilt and will do the honors of setting this one together. -- I will help :)
