Have you ever loved something, and had it make you crazy all at the same time? Well friends, welcome to college football season, and for me, that one thing is LSU football. I was born and raised in Baton Rouge, most of my family still lives there, and I graduated from LSU. So I'm a die-hard fan of all things purple and gold. But goodness gracious- watching them play football just makes me a little bit crazy.
ps- for all of you fans of other teams, or those of you who don't care for football at all, I promise not to fill my posts with LSU references throughout the entire season, but for the very first game, I couldn't help myself. ;)
It is so helpful for me to have something to busy myself with, so that I stay sane and don't bite my fingernails down to the quicks during the tight spots in games- which for us tends to be a lot. So last night, I was so grateful to have my churn dash blocks to keep myself busy. I managed to get all of them finished and pressed, and today I laid them out and put them together.
I'm so glad I went with a classic quilt block with the Happy Go Lucky fabrics. They have such a retro vibe and I think they work really well with this pattern.
Later today, I'll be on the hunt for backing and binding and I'm hoping I can find the perfect shade of orange for the backing. I already have plenty of Kona Navy that will work well for the binding (unless of course, I find a really awesome fabric that I like better). I can't wait to get this one quilted and finished!
I'll leave you with a photo that I took last year of my beloved Death Valley, and I'll promise that it will be the only one this season. :)
Happy football season, y'all!
