A Little of This A Little of That

I finished the quilt for my neighbor, Austin, who graduates this month..  
 I think it just may be my favorite ever.  (Of course I do say that about just about every quilt)!
 I absolutely love the Stonehenge fabrics.  

 The blue really adds zing to the borders and the centers of the stars.
 My SIL graduated with his Masters degree.  I told him to look educated.  
 Now the hard part begins......looking for a "real" job.

 We spent the weekend in St. George.  The weather was perfect, not too hot yet.  My son, Eric, (in the white shirt) took his 2 sons, Nate and Taylor (on his left) and his daughter, Katie (in front) and my older daughter's son, Jordan (on Eric's right) ziplining.  They had a great time in the afternoon so had to go again that evening.
Here my granddaughter, Katie made a ducky cake for Ellie.  We went to St. George to watch a dance program that she was in.  Sorry no pictures of that, but Ellie thoroughly enjoyed all the dancing and costumes.

I really enjoy giving a quilt to the graduates in my neighborhood.  I have watched most of them grow up from toddlers and it is so fun to see them grow and mature and get ready to leave home for college.

Happy Quilting!                   Lynda

Wow, it's stunning! I think I agree about the favorite part!
Congratulations to your son in law and good luck with his job hunt. My son finally got lucky last week after graduating a year ago. I'm so relieved ;).
