Description

This month was the Fun Fun Holiday Bunting for the Pretty in Patchwork Sew Along.

At first I was not going to make this one...but then I decided to do something fun for my niece who just completed her freshman year of college and made the Dean's list. She is such a fantastic young woman...and so I wanted to send her something fun and modern which she could put up in her room (her mom, my sister, told me she would love it...which was just the encouragement I needed).

She is into grays, yellows and turquoise, as well as chevron patterns...so I incorporated all of those into the design - spelling out her name (ABBY) and creating a heart block as well. The backs use chevrons...

Just wonderful- love the colors, especially the mix of black and white for the letters-and I know she will love it- who could not???? Super:) clap

Just saw the red "Y"- love the chevrons!

Mymble Thanks, Margaret - oh, and that red "Y" is actually a heart LOL...but I just looked at it and can see how it looks like a Y. I think you have to view these pics full size - the system has cut off about 60% of the photos when viewed in the slide show!!!

I love your color choices. I am sure Abby is going to proudly hang this in her room.

What a great idea for a dorm room! I wish I had seen this a couple of years ago when my girls when in their ugly dorm rooms. What a cheerful shout out!

Terryt1955 thanks, Terry - my niece called me shortly after she got it and she totally loved it (especially the gray chevrons!)...she hung it up immediately in her bedroom and plans to take it back to college with her in the fall :)
