Sarah's Graduation from College Quilt
Sarah took this picture on a semester abroad
in Mexico her sophomore year
The minute I saw this picture, I just knew it was going to be a quilt for her graduation! I started it back in January and finished it in time. I hand appliqued a variety of turquoise felted wool onto a white felted wool background. After the scroll was done, I added beads. I used turquoise and coral beads because she loves these colors and because I thought it would remind her of her trip to Mexico. After the beads were sewn on, I hand quilted by stippling. The results were wonderful. I just love it. She was surprised! Below are some better pics of her and the quilt.
The label I made to place on the back of her quilt.
