Kathy's grand-daughter

Kathy made this top for her grand-daughter's high school graduation.  She had the white blocks and markers set out at the open house so all the friends and family could write a note of congratulations, or good wishes for the future - whatever.  Then the two of them assembled the blocks into this beautiful top and passed it along to me for quilting.  I used white thread and put straight lines in the setting triangles, swirls in the block edges, a tiny scallop in the written areas, a zig zag in the border,  and little flower petals in the colored triangles.  I'm sure her grand-daughter will love it with all the love and memories in it forever.
