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.
