Hello Everyone,

If you have been following this saga of me and my daughter's college quilt... then end has come!! I did it, I finished it and just in time!! Sunday night I put the last stitches in the binding and as you read this she is getting settled at college!!  

Let's take a tour of the quilt...

If you remember, I used the school colors of cherry red and white.  But of course, I couldn't do ALL white.  I had to do it with a little black, it definitely adds more interest, don't you think?

I used some fabrics that I thought she would appreciate... cats and Converse.

More cats... can you tell we LOVE cats?

I quilted it with a simple swirl design that will stand the test of time... oh and the college abuse it may take.

I backed it with... I Love UK fabric.  She is into all things British and has been for sometime.  Loves BBC America, can't get enough.

Here is a close up, I thought this fabric was just perfect for her and she agreed!  I did sew a label to the back prior to the quilting, this way it is not only sewn on but quilted into it as well!!

Here it is... very loooooooooong!  I keep saying that the R will be the pillow tuck. But at least it will keep her warm and I would bet that she is the ONLY one on campus with a quilt like this!

This quilt has received her stamp of approval and I am wiping the sweat off my brow.

Until Next Time...
