Graduation Cap Quilt Block

This month’s Quilt Block Mania theme is Graduation. If you are making graduation quilts or wall hangings this may come in handy. I decided to go with the traditional mortarboard cap.

I know the colors are weird. . . but we are given a palette to work with and I am a rule follower when it comes to things like this!

My recommendation would be to use two similar colors for the cap- like dark gray and black or white and light gray. The tassel can represent that all important school color and you may even use a print for the background.

This is a paper pieced pattern. Here are some links if you need some help with this process.

This is how I would represent my own high school graduation cap from Skowhegan Area High School in Maine.

There are LOTS of great blocks featuring the theme
