Another graduation quilt



My niece Olivia graduated from high school a few weeks ago, and guess what she got as a present from me? I made her this quilt out of Birds on a Whim 2 by Amy Schimler. It is the same Yellow Brick Road pattern that I used for my brother's 50th birthday quilt.

I have a panel of cute Susan Branch labels and used one on this project (click on the photo for a close-up). We were in Toronto so we didn't make it to the graduation, but I was told that she likes it, by others as well as in her thank-you note.

I have been out of town for the last three weekends, so just trying to get back into the swing. We missed our CSA delivery on Sunday but was able to pick it up on Wednesday. I have been told that no one wants to look at photos of frozen meat, but here is the latest addition...eggs! This will appease my desire to raise chickens in our backyard...I can always go and visit our grandchickens.
