This is a simple block memory quilt I was commissoned to make for a friend. She asked me to do it when things were just, frankly, crazy. We were packing to move. I was managing Senior Prom and a High School graduation, and an 8th grade graduation. And a 13 year old's birthday party. Not to mention there were quilts that had to be made!! So I think that I have a pretty valid excuse that I only have photos that she and I took on our phones!
I actually had some really cool plans, but financially and just expediency took over and we both decided on just simple blocks. I didn't want to separate the fronts and backs of his important All-State and Champion t-shirts, so I decided that two rows of color with the whites at the top and bottom would be cool. Looking back? I wish I had done some sort of sashing. But that's neither here nor there now!
I chose the school color green in minky for his backing and their secondary navy color for the binding. You can get a glimpse of the vareigated green I used on the entire quilt in a cool square meandering pattern.
Measures: 56" x 70"
Pattern: Simple blocks
Fabric: Kona Navy Blue and Shannon Fabrics Green Cuddle
Quilted: Square Meandering with Superior Threads So Fine Variegated Green on HQ Avante
All that matters is that he got his quilt by graduation ON TIME, right??
