Mountains on the Prairie?

Just before the May long weekend here in Canada, I was lucky enough to quilt this beauty up for Diane S. She has 7 grandchildren  (3 girls, 4 boys) and is making each of them a quilt for graduation. Thankfully, they aren’t all graduating at once! hahahaha!

Diane and her husband are snowbirds, so she works on the quilt tops over the winter in Arizona and brings them back in the spring, ready to quilt. She made this gorgeous quilt for one of her grandsons and I’m sure that when he graduates he will LOVE it!

Diane used  a combination of regular quilting cotton and Batiks in blues and greys, and a white with grey dots for the background and the effect is stunning. I quilted it in medium grey Essential Pro thread from Connecting Threads with the Jessie’s Swirls panto. She chose Angela Walters wide fabric in Paisley Feathers for the backing.

The result is a beautiful quilt just perfect for a young man!

I’m linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday! Hope you all have a great weekend!!
