After Christmas, I was telling my brother about gifting my dad his shoulder wrap. I teased my brother that I had some of that Duck Dynasty fabric leftover, and could make him one too. He declined. Then I mentioned, there was collegiate fabric for WVU that could be made into a quilt. His reply, well if you aren’t too busy, I take a twin.
He texted a big SWEET back at me. There are 3 prints, 2 gold prints and 1 gold solid, then 1 bright blue, and 1 navy print. You can’t quite see everything in this pic though.
You can see my threaded needle if you look closely though. I am hand stitching this one, its my favorite method of piecing. The ladies at the shop were asking me why I wasn’t using the machine, and I just said, its not what my mind goes to when I think of making something for someone. Hand piecing is my love. And I got to work sewing up four patches of the gold and blues to go in between the WV prints.
I am trying to keep it simple but interesting, and hope he really appreciates it.
