Here's another graduation quilt!  This is number 5, so I am almost halfway there.  Just 6 more to go, but I have a few years on a couple of them.  This one is made entirely from my stash.  I decided a couple of quilts ago that I needed to remember that these quilts are headed for college dorm rooms and will probably take a beating, so I am not investing a lot of money or time into them.  Although, I have to say this one did take a lot of time.  But it is done, just waiting for a label.

Next project will be getting back to Esther's LE quilt.  I have had little time for it this summer.  I have made two of the center compasses and have not been satisfied with either one.  So this afternoon I will start on compass number 3.  Not sure why I am having so much trouble since I have actually made a full size mariners compass quilt a few years ago and it came out perfectly fine.  I think that maybe I was rushing it, trying to play catch up since I am running so far behind.  As a moderator on Esther's group I tell people "this isn't a race", but I don't practice what I preach, lol.

That's it for this week.  I hope you all have a great one.


  1. Love the colors in this quilt! It will really cheer the room up and make them think happy thoughts just what is needed when they are away at school!!

  2. Fabulous colours here Pat it feels warm just looking at it. I was happy to read that you had trouble with your compass too. I finally left my last star wonky LOL. It does bug me but if I had tried to sew that last joining star in once more it would have been the end of that compass and may be LE before I started LOL. Hugs Glenda

  3. What a lovely quilt for a student's room! I love the colours. Success with your compass!
