Thanks!

I believe it is Woodland Clover from the More Nickel Quilts book....by Pat Speth...
I tried to make it masculine, but added a few fabrics to personalize it for his memories...some Gator blue, FL fish, Hawaiian fabric for his trip with his Grandpa there a few years ago, a piece of fabric of lighting...which will be a big part of his training for his career.

It took every bit of 4 weeks...which is quick for me...I didn't work on anything else in order to finish in time.

THX for listening and such sweet comments!

I really love your quilt and to think it only took you 4 weeks to complete! Wow! I'd be at it for 4 months!

What a fantastic graduation gift - something he will treasure for a long time

Gwen, Nice job! I like how you made it manly but also included the personal touches for memories. No wonder we haven't seen you around, you've been holed up in your sewing room with the door locked! I still haven't gotten one of those Nickle books!
