I also had the pleasure of making a quilt for a friend who is a diehard University of Memphis fan. Of course, I root for the Tigers of the purple and gold variety, but I know my friend will love this quilt, and living in the Memphis metro area means that I have LOTS of UM fan friends. FYI-there is some identifying information monogrammed onto the white corner blocks, so I have blocked them out, since this quilt is a surprise.
The biggest challenge with this quilt was finding fabrics in the right shades of blue and gray. UM is a smaller school, so there is only one licensed fabric in production. I had to hunt the rest down. I must say though, that Cotton and Steel tiger print with the royal blue hearts, the tiger stripe with gray and white grunge background, and the blue and gray triangle print are perfect in this quilt.
The backing is pieced with all of the scraps from the top, and a solid cobalt blue binding frames everything nicely. I can't wait for her to get it. She is going to flip out!
This piece of awesomeness by A Pigeon in Pungo was designed after a city map. So cool!
and the use of color in this quilt, shared by Quilt Fabrication is really pretty.
