Even as a rival team fan, I have to say that I like how this one turned out. The team fabric is subtle, and the pattern is modern and masculine enough for its recipient.
I used the partial squares that were left over on the back, along with chambray. In general, when I make a quilt for a man (or boy), I try to keep the backings pretty simple but still interesting, and I love using chambray for them. It's 57 inches wide, so that makes it really easy to just add a small strip of scraps and call it done; and what man do you know that doesn't like denim? The binding on this one is Kona Rich Red, which I had left over from my Truffles quilt. The finished quilt measures 62" square, which is a weird measurement for a quilt that is eight blocks across. It's because the starting blocks finish at 16.5," which are then cut into fourths, making them 8.25" before sewing, and finishing at 7.75." Clear as mud, right?
Sooo...let's jump to a few features from last week's party, shall we? Jennie at Porch Swing Quilts showed off this stunning flowering snowball top-
Jayne from Twiggy and Opal linked up this cool quilt using her Denyse Schmidt stash.
and Micki at 2 Dogs Studio shared this fun little quilt. This is a great way to show off little sampling of large, bold prints!
