For Maddie I kicked it up a notch and put satin on the back. It feels fabulous! I also quilted it with straight lines on the machine.

Good Job Tyler!

This quillow looks exactly like the one Mom made for her grandchildren when they graduated from High School.

Mom had 63 grandchildren and now that she is gone her daughters have tried to keep the tradition and make a quillow for the graduate.

We only have 8 more to go.
