An early finish!


This past summer Steve asked if I was going to make him a quilt to take to college. He requested a quilt in the colors of his school of choice, Arizona State University. Maroon & Gold! So I immediately set out to find a pattern that was masculine & young at the same time. I found this quilt in McCalls Quick Quilts magazine, it was called Sea Glass. It took 12 fat quarters and extra black & gold for the borders.

Last Saturday Steve found out he has been accepted to ASU! He is a senior in High School this year & will leave in August 2011 to study journalism at the ASU Cronkite school. & now he has a quilt to take with him. I just need to hide it from my hubby who is so pleased that it matches our family room....
