Judge Memorial School Pride {Quilt}

"Live, Laugh, Love, Bulldog"

At the end of 2017, I decided I was not going to take on any commissions or obligations for the New Year.  I needed and still need to refocus my attentions on where and what I'm doing as a quilter.  The only obligation that I knew I had was my two son's high school auction quilt.


To make this simple, I did the exact same pattern as the one I did for Button's school auction, using
The goal was to keep it simple and use the cutest fabrics I could find....in my stash!



I happened to have some fun stripes and dots I have collected over the years and a few I picked up recently for some Christmas projects.


 Along with the theme of simplification, I quilted it with a freemotion meandering pattern.


I had this black and white fabric with the intention of using it as a backing for a particular bee quilt, but I finally decided will probably never happen and used it on this one! 
It made the decision to use white thread to quilt even easier!


I love how the quilt label popped on it!
 
 I don't usually go "easy" with applique, but this year I really wanted to simplify this process, so I used wonder under, layered the logo, and used a blanket stitch on the raw edges.


Black dot binding seemed to put a stamp on my idea of a fun quilt!





Quilt Stats
Measures: 54"x 61"
Pattern: School Spirit by Riley Blake
Fabrics: Joann Fabrics
Quilted: Freemotion meandering on HQ Avante







I think it definitely was different using mostly prints over solids only like the other two quilts the past years.












I'll leave it up to everyone else on which of the three is their favorite!
