This is one of a trio of quilts I made for 3 sisters.
All 3 girls are excellent athletes, participating in lacrosse and swimming throughout their childhoods and high school. The oldest sister also played Division 1 lacrosse at the University of Richmond, very time consuming and impressive!
I believe this quilt set a new record for number of shirt emblems in one quilt. I was able to squeeze 11 NVSL All Star logos into one block. The mom wanted non-Halloweeny arachnid motifs since Richmond’s mascot is the spider but she found high heel fabric for the borders and sashing as the recipient is now working in Manhattan and is in pumps and suits.
My favorite block in this quilt is this one below, I love the smiling shark and apparently this now-sophisticated young lady, former jock laxer, was originally a Barney fan! 🙂
How many University of Richmond students does it take to change a light bulb?
Two, one to mix the martinis and one to call the electrician.
