Emi's Graduation Quilt by engiknitter
My youngest sister is graduating from high school in May, so I wanted to make her a fun and youthful quilt. I had a FQ stack of Power Pop by Jenean Morrison which made me think of her. So fun and colorful and modern! For some reason the fabric inspired me to do something with circles. I finally decided to make rings of various diameters, scattered randomly against a blue background (her favorite color).
I had exactly 20 different fabrics in my stack, and a Dresden plate has exactly 20 "petals"... coincidence? I made six Dresden plates (without points) then cut the plates into three rings each. Scattered the rings among a queen sized blue background, temporarily ironed them with fusible web, and then zigzag appliquéd them to the background. Ill post a picture ASAP.
