Mother and Son Graduation Quilts

I had never had this type of order it is a quilt for a son for graduation and also a quilt for mom while he is away at college. What a great idea
I love the flannel for this one, it was so amazingly soft
She wanted a log on the front with his name and i appliqued his little league patches onto the quilt as well
The quilts were made nearly identical, she actually sent the layouts she wanted for both of these
Same backings
same logos

Precious Friend Quilt

Sometimes quilting customers become precious friends. I had the honor of making this quilt for my friend. She just had a few shirts and I added the embroidered squares
She loves lady bugs and red fabric so I found the perfect selection for her.

Prom with Friends

Prom was a great experience. She went with a senior friend and then one of her dear senior girlsfriends and her date from Acadec
Her hair makes the most beautiful curls
I am thankful that her dates mom has a wonderful camera, the pictures look stunning
They looked so amazing
too cute
love the black and white
Photos from the dance turned out great too
She had a wonderful time
After Prom they come back to the High School for a game night- called After Prom
Table Settings
Amazed with the texas weather that her curls stuck. i am thankful her Aunt helped her get her hair made up
They had so much fun~

After Prom the Acadec team sets up a hallway of games, video, board, ping pong. Its a long evening but all three of my kiddos and I helped out on the hall from set up to tear down.
Its nice that you don't have to wear your dress to this portion, you can bring clothes to change into
its such a long night Zekaryah and I played monopoly
Always got to get in one crazy photo

History Remembered

As part of History Class, Zekaryah had to choose a person in history and try to recreate his stance, look, etc. He chose Tesla. He did a pretty good job, they just had to submit both the photograph of the person and themselves, then write a paper about the person. He got a 100.

Graduation Quilt with Tie Dye

I love tie dyed shirts, they really add fun to quilts
Taking pictures with so many colors is sometimes an issue with glare
The back flannel was such an amazing blue color. I wish I had been able to buy more

Choir Banquet and Acadec Game Night

Sometimes schedules collide, esp at the end of the year. They had a choir banquet and Acadec Game night on the same evening. The choir banquet called for Black and white attire. They decided since they would be there for just a short amount of time they would wear what they had. It worked out well. It also worked for their game night. Bad part of the evening for mekenzei is she was so worn out from the year that she had a horrible ear ache and headache by the end of the evening and I had to pick her and Zekaryah up early from the game night
