Graduation Gift Follow-Up

I've been so busy lately that I didn't realize it had been over a week since I last posted.! The days fly by so quickly, yet I don't have much to show in the sewing area. We have been setting some high temperature records recently - 104-108 degrees, and that zaps the energy right out of me. Even at night, which is when I do most of my sewing, it is still in the high 80's or low 90's.  I just want to sit in a cool place and read Mockingjay, the 3rd book in the Hunger Games series.

On a follow-up note from earlier in the month, remember the quilt I made for my cousin's daughter Jordan, well, here she is opening the present at her graduation party.

This is what she saw upon opening it.

I think she really liked it.  You just never know with teenagers.  It was fun to make and it makes it all worthwhile when they appreciate it.

I received a nice thank you card within the week after the graduation party.

She is such a sweet girl and will be going to college about 2 hours from home in the Fall.


  1. I finished Mockingjay last week and loved it, as I did all of the books in that series! I listened to it on Audible, which really brought it to life for me.

    Jordan looks very pleased indeed! And who wouldn't be? That's a beautiful quilt and you added all those special touches - great job!!!

  2. Considering what she's wearing in the picture, I'd say you made perfect choices for the quilt!

  3. It's a beautiful quilt! And I agree with Linda about your color choice.

  4. How great that your cousin sent you such wonderful photos. Looks like she loves it. A beautiful quilt for a beautiful girl (FROM a beautiful lady!!)
