Tasha's Graduation Quilt: May 2011

Tasha with her Quilt
I made this small wall hanging quilt for my niece, Tasha, who graduated from high school last week.   I had her send her favorite photos to me for this project.  I used Photoshop Elements to edit the photos, then printed onto printable fabric.  I trimmed the photos, and added the fusible webbing to the back of each fabric photo.  Tasha told me that her favorite colors are purple, blue and yellow, so I went with that color scheme and used a simple strip method of cutting the colored fabrics, and appliqued them randomly onto the base fabric.  I then applied the fabric photos, and appliqued those into place.  This quilt was a lot of fun to make, and it was fun to connect to Tasha's high school life through her photos.
