Quilt With Us

This is the "Somersault" quilt.

The quilt was made from two Bali Pops.  The back was chosen in under five minutes.  I had to finish the quilt by the weekend and only had one chance to buy the backing fabric.  Entered the quilt store five minutes before closing, chose the fabric, had it cut, paid for it, and was out the door by five after.  I think the backing works.  At least I hope it does!

Two years ago I had two nephews graduate from High School.  Like the four nieces and one nephew before them, their graduation present was to be a quilt.  Two years later, I finally finished the first of the two quilts.  The quilt is my design called "Somersault." 

The other nephew's graduation quilt is next.  Since he was the first person I ever made a quilt/throw for, over 10 years ago, I guess it won't hurt if he waits another few months for his graduation present.  After all, he's already been waiting for over two years!
