Angie's Graduation Quilt

 The graduation quilt for my neice, Angela, is finished and delivered. She texted the other day to say it arrived so now I can post  pictures of it. I used all purple and aqua fabrics with solid white sashing. The pattern is out of the magazine Quilts and More, spring 2012 issue. If you want a fun and easy quilt, this is it. I love how modern it is.
Well, that's another job done so I'm off to the sewing room to finish up my next project. I'm on month 4 (out of 5) of the Amish with a Twist BOM. This is going to be a sample at Hearts to Holly and so far, I'm really liking this pattern. It has you work on the border pieces as you do the 12 sampler blocks. That will make the whole thing move along much faster... when I'm done with the 12 blocks, I'll be mostly done piecing the border. Nice! It's a well written pattern, also.... nice for a beginner that wants to slowly progress to something a little more difficult. I'll post some pics of the blocks when I get a chance.

Hi Deb,
I looked up the spring 2012 issue of Quilts and More, but this quilt does not seem to be one of their featured quilts (http://www.allpeoplequilt.com/magazines-more/quilts-and-more/color-options-quilts-and-more-spring-2012). Do you know what the pattern was called or if I can buy past issues anywhere? Thank you!

Not sure where you can get the magazine anymore but you can buy the pattern on this page:
