I pieced this and quilted it. A great graduation gift.

The back first. It's a lovely paisley pantograph.
Lots and lots of different fabrics here. I blogged the process of making it on my other blog. If you want to see all the posts look at the labels and click on Hawaiian.
Panto was designed by Aimee Mahan

Grandma's flower garden or hexagon quilt

 Isn't this stunning?
 Free motion/custom with white glide thread.
The back is nice too!
Never, never, never try to bind a hexagon quilt this big with hexagonal shaped binding. AGONIZING.
Details on my other blog here and here and here.
I also mentioned the quilt here, here and here.

Log Cabin

 Honeysuckle pantograph on a lovely log cabin quilt.
 Beige thread
3/8" binding

Twin quilts

For 2 darling brothers (my grandson's) I quilted 2 quilts that were made by their Mother.

 Blue and white with the back being their mother's teenage curtains and a strip of brother's brown fabric.

 Brown and white top with a section of Mother's curtains for the back and a strip of brother's blue fabric.

The each chose rainbow thread for their top. They also got to choose the quilting designs. Tyler's (the top one) chose feathers (I think because they are on his baby quilt and they were familiar to him) and I used King Tut rainbow thread. Jimmy chose 'dragon tails' and rainbow Isacord thread.
Their Mother learned how to do binding and finished them except for the label while visiting here.
These are their Christmas presents...we'll see if they stay in the cupboard until then.
