Thanks to a little help from some amazing friends, the Patriots Quilt for my coworker/friend who is undergoing chemo is done. I apologize for the terrible indoor pictures, but I just pulled it from the dryer a few minutes ago and snapped some quick pictures. I used Cluck Cluck Sew's Touchdown pattern for the football portion:
The letters are the six inch versions from Lori Holt's Spelling Bee book.
My quilter does not have a football design, but knowing my friend the beer bottles and loops go very well with the football and Patriots themes. I choose a gray thread and the quilting shows up, but does not overpower it.
The backing is genuine Patriots fabric sent from the Boston area by Nancy at http://pugmomquilts.blogspot.com
I got the Patriots fabric in the mail on Thursday afternoon and I pieced it together with the Brady jersey that night and dropped it off to Glenn on Friday morning and he squeezed in the quilting this afternoon.
I spent this evening machine binding it and washed it with Color Catchers. If my buddy is at work tomorrow I will give it to him otherwise, I will try to get some better pictures.
My daughter arrived safely from London and is enjoying her time with our dogs and sleeping in her queen size bed with her new quilt! I have to survive this week of work before our two week Christmas Break begins...
