Friday Finish -- Adam's Quilt

My friend's son Adam graduated from high school last June and I only recently finished his quilt. Oops!

I added the extra blocks to the back of the quilt:

The pattern is Strip Cocktail and the fabric is all scrap! This is at least the third quilt that I've made from that pattern and I am sure I will make more

I added borders to the quilt since Adam is one rather tall young man.

The border and backing fabric were purchased during my trip to The Patchwork Company last fall with my friend John. I felt guilty purchasing so much fabric that day, but I had this quilt in mind. I had a few other quilts in mind as well, but they remain unfinished for now.

Check out what others have Finished for Friday!

It is beautiful! I'm sure Adam will be thrilled with it. It will be with him for many years, and see him through many of life's changes, and whenever he sees it, he will think of you!

What a wonderful choice for a young man. Great job. Thanks so much for sharing.
