Ann: Graduation and Ruffled Roses

 The Ruffled Roses top from 2011 is now quilted, bound and delivered.
My friend Margaret did the quilting on her long arm. She was going out of town with her daughters and granddaughters, so did it quickly. Unfortunately when she got home her basement was flooded, so we were both so happy that she had taken the time to do it before she left, because her long arm machine is in her basement.
 This is the center section of the quilt. Lots of piecing and applique went into it.
 Oops, the tag is upside down, sorry

And here is our graduate, Kylie. She is number six of thirteen grandchildren.
Back in 2011, while I was working on the quilt, I spent a long weekend with the kids while their parents went to Las Vegas to run in a Ragnor Relay. I worked on the quilt while I was there and she sat right by me and watched me sew.
Kylie graduated from Northridge High School yesterday, with High Honors. She will attend Weber State University in the fall, but next week she will be taking a CNA class and then will probably work in an assisted living center this summer.
She is our Ice Skating Queen and will got to the national competition in Wenachee Washington in the fall. Last year she took second place over-all in Chicago.
