Varanda H. Alexis Graduation Quilt

Varanda H. Alexis Graduation Quilt

I must start this post by saying “I have never seen such excitement from a client until now.”  When I received the request to create a quilted wallhanging for a graduation present, my mind went into overdrive.  My client already had a plan and after a short meeting the idea was put into motion.  I had just 14 days from start to finish in order to meet her requested deadline date and with Varanda’s excitement how could I refuse.  There are t-shirts, fabrics and photos that make up this special gift.

2002 – 2003 Quilts

I tried various techniques during these two years mostly using the Stack n Whack (SnW) pattern.  I wanted to showcase more of the base fabric in the SnW so I altered the layout to include the large wedge on the corners.  I practiced aligning my points and stitch in ditch (SID), agonizing over every detail.  One day while I was showing off one of my quilts and critiquing every aspect a wise individual told me this.  If it was to be without variances it would have come off an assembly line.
