One Gift Finished

This week I finished the green and white quilt I’ve been working on for my DS, who attends Marshall University.  It’s a nine-patch, so, really, it sewed up fairly quickly.  I just got a bit tired of green.

Marshall has changed their green over the years.  It’s currently a shade brighter than kelly (emerald?), but at a game one sees every shade, from hunter to this current bright green. So I just rummaged through my 3 1/2″ scraps and my green bin to find a variety of greens that don’t go together at all, but seem to get along in this quilt.  These may be my last pieces of the chartreuse and teal Mirror Ball Dot.  The white is mainly Basic Gray Grunge, with some white, snow, and the odd bit of Fairy Frost.

The backing came from Kelly of SewmuchfunWV  on Etsy (and has a different green from any on the front!).

So that’s one of my December goals finished, and I’m making good headway on another (which I won’t be showing before Christmas!)  See what everyone’s finishing over at Finish It Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.

  1. Very cool quilt!

  3. Fantastic! I think you son will love it!

  4. That is really a neat quilt. I want to make an LSU themed quilt for my brother and this gives me a really good idea!
