When I graduated from high school in the year of 2002, I didn't think of what I wanted my graduation gift to be. I figured money was always a winner. My grandmother who I call "Grams", called months in advance and asked what I wanted for graduation. I automatically thought of a quilt! I flew to Michigan to visit her, and she took me shopping to select my fabric for the quilt. At the time, I was not aware that Batiks were so expensive, but she purchased them anyway. I said that I wanted an appliquéd' quilt. I wanted it to be colorful, and have flowers.
After 6 months of anticipation, she sent me this lovely quilt that she designed herself. I just selected the fabric. She chose the backing and everything else. I want to share my pics (recent) of the quilt that I still use.
