Sports and Scraps

My son's Graduation quilt is DONE!
 
Just a tiny bit late.
;/

The sports themed fabric is for HIM.
The scraps are for ME.
 
 

The backing was made with a thrifted sheet
and a piece of fabric I added to make it big enough.
 
Amazing I had something in the stash
that coordinated so well!
I had JUST enough left for binding.
LOVE when stuff like that happens!

  2. The real question is: Does He Like It? Personally I love it. (Even with the big sports spots.) From this distance the sporty parts aren't that apparent. Good Job.

  7. Great use of fabrics--I made a baby quilt for a family member and was thankful I finished before he went to college
