As I was thinking about it, my daughter and I can now do joint gifts for our Godmothers birthday and mothers day. Since Godmother is a *huge* fan of Duke and the Patriots, off I went shopping for some new fabrics. The goal is to get the whole quilt done by Mothers Day in May.
I got some Duke fabric, and Patriots. The Patriots has a pinch of red in it, so I'll do a skinny border in red, and then more blue and white.
I'm making WhirlyGig blocks! :) So much fun. Here's a close up of the blocks before I trimmed them to size.
And after playing with how to lay the blocks out, this is the layout I decided on, with a ton of help from my husband. Please excuse my toes.
And this is what I've gotten accomplished so far. All the blocks but 3 are sewn (those will be going on the backing which will be pieced just because a pieced backing is so much more awesome in my opinion). I still need to add a larger blue and white border, then sandwich, quilt and bind. I'm still debating on colors to bind, red or blue. Any suggestions, feel free to leave a comment!
Until later my friends!
