All Churned Up! A graduation quilt

>> Thursday, June 28, 2018

This week is the last week of school where I live. My daughter graduated from high school this year. She went to high school out of town and we relied heavily on one of her closest friend's family to help us get through four years of after school theatre club and winter weather. Of course a quilt for her friend was in order!

I used two older lines of fabric designed by Janet Clare to make this twin sized version of my Churn, Baby, Churn baby quilt pattern. I wanted the quilt to remind the graduate of the northern lakes and landscapes she will leave when she goes off to university with the hopes of keeping home close to her heart.

What I really like about the finish is that the curved quilting I did really helps show off the churn dashes.

And that I got it done on time!

I made a pattern supplement to go with my Churn, Baby, Churn that gives the fabric requirements and a few tips on making this larger sized quilt. I made this one using a layer cake and some two different pieces of yardage because I didn't have enough of the one. 

Edited to say that the instructions to the larger size quilt are now included with the Churn Baby Churn pattern

What a great quilt, and it's sure to remind her of home (and the mom / family that loves her)!
The quilting adds to the design perfectly!
