Our grandson, Daevaughn Chatman,
is a Senior in the Class of 2020
That means many heartbreaking things...
Missing the prom, graduation ceremony.
The longest ‘Senior Skip Day’ ever.
For me, it meant a graduation quilt!
I have a ga-zillion precuts and I found some
by Amy Ellis that read masculine.
I decided to use Charm Pack Cherry pattern.
Its quick and easy using charm packs!
Not too much fabric to pack for my winter snowbird adventure
The pattern is free over at the FQ Shop.

I began working on the quilt, in the small condo we had rented.
A padded TV table for my ironing surface and my Featherweight
Lots of chain piecing the 5" charms together
They were then cut in half and sewn back together.
I made a few 9 patch blocks to make the quilt larger.
A photo opp outside the condo.
I quilted it on my Bernina 740 with
simple straight lines design - vertical and horizontal
Thrilled with the end result.
The backing is made with a coordinating Layer Cake
And a couple strips to make it large enough.
I used the text sewing function on my Bernina
to add the label info, directly on the front of the quilt.
We don’t know when or if there will be a graduation party.
But regardless, ‘I got him covered’
