Finish It Up Friday ~ The Grad Quilt

I didn’t need to have this quilt finished until July, but I’m glad it is done and ready to go.

Did you guess that I went with the Hypnotic pantograph?

I like the juxtaposition of the straight lines in the blocks and the quilted swirls.

I am also pleased that it looks masculine and modern.

Have a great day!

    Fabulous! The quilt manages to look masculine and still be bright. I agree, the swirly quilting is a nice offset to the straight lines. Well done!

    This is a great quilt. It makes a great guy quilt, but could easily be made in many different colors for anyone, young or old.

    Looks great! It looks like you have a specific color palette going on here. Was this from a fabric bundle or did you pick them yourself?
