I finished the front of the first quilt for Sarah today. I’m calling it Bears and Gators, because of the Chicago Bears and Florida Gators Tshirts I used in it. It’s a full size quilt as they all will be. As you can see it’s too big for my wall.
I didn’t want to introduce any new colors to the quilt and by the time I got to the outer edge, I had run out of the colors I was using. So I took a bunch of the scraps and sewed them together, in the true tradition of quilt making.
I haven’t made a quilt using so many solid colors in a long time. I do love how the edge of one color looks up against the edge of another color and how straight forward it is. And I think I figured out how to use the white too. It’s no more bold than the rest of the colors.
