|Sorry these are sideways, they were too long to hang vertically in my usual picture spot. Just, turn your head a little...|
The two quilts are almost the same, excepting that the logos are mirrored color schemes and placed on opposite sides. I found 3 A&M novelty fabrics and coordinating maroon and white tone on tones.
Since these are for grown men I made them 56"x80". I would have gone a bit wider, but I wanted to avoid piecing the fleece backing which has a ~60" WOF.
I made the two logo panels using applique/reverse applique. For more on the process see this post. I put an extra layer of batting behind all the letters, which made them stand up nicely.
For quilting I did a stipple but mixed in words that are significant to Aggies. First I brainstormed a list which I kept by my sewing machine and mixed in as I went. I had to brush up on my rusty cursive!
|Well crap, I just realized that I spelled "Reveille" wrong|
|Kyle Field, our football stadium. BTW it's really hard to sew a cursive uppercase "F"|
|"The Batt" is the student run newspaper|
Thanks and Gig 'em! ;)
