Gosh, I usually feel exuberant when a quilt is finished - but I tied off the last eye button and felt like crying, instead. :( That's because this quilt is finished just in time to make the road trip out to Colorado to take Devon off to college. And that means Heather will be gone soon, too! meh.
These guys are going to do a terrific job of cheering up Dev's dorm room and reminding her of how much we love her at home!
Patty did a terrific quilting job. It's almost the same job as the quilting on Heather's, except that now Patty has a computer attachment, so she was able to work out a really neat white border treatment that coordinates with the Celtic knots in the corners. Very cool!
She also wrote "2011" in each corner's quilting.
I think this guy is my favorite.
No, maybe this guy.
Or this one!
No. It's this one. :D Because my Baby Girl worked so hard to get that gold-tassel Summa Cum Laude with a heavy AP load, despite having to fight dyslexia, and while remaining incredibly active in a demanding band program and giving service to her community.
Here's to you, Devon!!
