I finished the quilt top for my GS's high school graduation - Star Gazing from Bonnie Hunter's book, "Scraps and Shirttails." It is made from a variety of scraps including men's shirts, but also some new "musical" fabric because he plays the trumpet, piano and organ.

I have to say that Bonnie's instructions are always easy to follow. I bought sashing fabric from Connecting Threads on sale and got similar colors to what she used in her quilt. The cheddar is some Jo Morton fabric that I purchased at a garage sale and I used it in another of Bonnie's quilts that I made last year (see my heading picture above),
I have to add that we are very proud of my GS, as he has earned scholarship offers from 2 colleges and he has until May 1 to make up his mind. Both schools are offering an academic scholarship, plus an organ performance scholarship that brings the price down within reach of a regular family - for all four years! He wants to major in history, which is right for him as he is very studious and loves the old fashioned way of life (at least he thinks he does) better than modern life.
Now I'm piecing the back so I can get it quilted before we go to his graduation in June.
