Shelby's Grad quilt 2014

It is that time of year to think of making quilts for the HS Graduates in the family.  My niece, Shelby came up with the inspiration piece.
Her colors are Dark Oranges and Greys.

I will tweak the layout a bit so I can get some strips for signatures from teachers and friends. 

Possible fabric for the back of the quilt.  Subject to her approval of course!
Good friend, Dawn stopped by and helped me pull fabrics to play with.  Not everything will make it into the quilt but it is always fun to make a pile or two.

I have searched my dies for a diamond shape and can't find one.  So....I either never had one or I have misplaced mine.  Lucky for me Pam has one at her shop I can get tomorrow afternoon.  Fingers crossed this future snuggle under gets cut out while I get caught up on my recorded shows. 

Tonight I will audition fabrics and pick one to strip cut for signatures.  Shelby, expect a package in the mail next week.    I can get the star done while you are gathering well wishes from your classmates.

Of course I will show off progress if/when I make any-  be good  cw
