3 Graduation Quilts

Somewhere in all the craziness of my life I had forgotten to blog about the three graduation quilts  I made for my nieces this spring.  All three graduated high school and are now off to various parts of the country for college.  Yea for College Life!!

It was fun to let them open them all together at our family reunion this summer.

3 Grad Girls

Since I was making three I wanted to go with a simpler design.  I made a quilt similar to these for my nephew's wedding a few years ago.  It is by far the most re-pinned quilt that I've made.

3 Girls Wrapped in Quilts
Anyway, you can see that the girls are all quite different with varying tastes, but I thought the simple, clean blocks would still suit each of them well.

Aqua Charm Square Quilt
Turquoise (aka Tiffany Blue) for this choir loving lady.
(backed with Geekly Glasses in off white by Riley Blake)

Brightly Colored Charm Square Quilt

Lots of Brights for this orchestra, swim team, bilingual-speaking girl.

Vintage Floral Sheet Quilt Back
And an equally bright floral vintage sheet for the backing.

Black and White Charm Square Quilt
 Black and white and hot pink for this cross-country running animal lover.

 Technicolor Quilt Back
With contrasting colors on the back.

3 Charm Square Quilts

Definitely my favorite thing about quilting is giving my creations to others so they can feel loved!  For these three it was no different.
They are all bright, fun, happy girls who are ready to conquer their dreams.
Here's to big adventures and catching your dreams!


Linking up to Finish It UP Friday.

I love all 3 of them! The easy design makes the prints pop - your nieces are lucky girls! How fun to be able to give each of them such a personal and unique gift.

I get the most satisfaction from making quilts that I am giving away too! It's fun to think of what colours and designs the person will like the most. Your three quilts are really cool, well done!
