Here's my Daughter, in a casual moment with her Dad.
This is her, along with a Good Friend. They got ready together. All the giggling indicated they were having fun, and full of excitement.
My Daughter with her Date, who is also a fine trumpet player.
And finally, with her two Best Buddies. She has known one since Kindergarden, the other since Second Grade. They have shared a lot over those years.....
There were a bunch of other kids there also. The funny part, though, was the huge crowd of parents, madly snapping photos. The kids were quite gracious about it, but very glad when we were all done. Now the count down begins to Graduation. This is happening way too fast!
To get back on the subject of quilting, I thought I would show you another quilt that I made for the Three Creative Studios Color Paleette Challenge. This one should have been for the February Challenge, but since I never met a deadline I couldn't miss, it did not get done in time.
The photo with the challenge color chips was of an iris, which got me thinking "Fleur De Lis". I wanted to go with the "tiled" look that I've been using for this series, but using larger tiles.
Then I added a queen, sitting on her throne, wearing a long gown. I think the gown may have shown up because of all the prom dress hemming I was doing!
The quilting on this one is only in the grout lines of the tiles. It pushes the image to the background a little, an effect which is further emphasized by the variegated thread fading in and out against the different blue shades of the tiles. It makes the viewer look more closely, to be sure of what they are seeing.
And now, back to quilting. Hopefully, I will have another piece finished on Thursday to show you. Until then, enjoy the sunshine, if you have it!
