Well a few of my latest quilts, namely my two Ole Miss quilts and my LSU Love quilt, have prompted another friend to ask for a team quilt for her son- 'tis the season for gifts, you know! She asked for the Stacked Squares pattern for the quilt, and only wanted a tiny bit of team fabric (fine by me!). She was also open to the addition of a few more colors than just the traditional red and navy to add some dimension.
Ole Miss sometimes wears retro helmets that are actually powder blue rather than navy, and occasionally the team sports shades of gray as well, so I incorporated those colors in the design, and I really love the depth it added to the quilt.
As I mentioned before, the season for gift sewing is in full swing, which means that I am also working on a couple of secret projects. It's always tough for me to keep these kinds of projects off of my blog (I am the worst secret-keeper), but at this time of year, there's just no way around it!
Another thing I can share though is that I just got a full fat-quarter bundle of the Ambleside collection, and I have a great plan for these sweet colors as soon as I finish up this latest quilt.
