This quilt was made for a Denison University
alumna to celebrate her baccalaureate status. Like so many other recipients of my quilts, she was very involved during college. She is a member of Delta Delta Delta,
a Resident Advisor, an intercollegiate soccer player for the Big Red, and in her free time, a marathon runner. She continues to give back to the community by serving in the Teach for America program,
As usual, I kept the collar and buttons of the polo shirt to add some dimension. I love the black and red print that was used for the sashing and borders. The recipient’s style is both urban and sophisticated so this contemporary fabric fit the bill.
I couched the Tri-Delta graduation cord to the upper left corner and appliqued her karate belt to the lower right. I tied the belt in the specific knot that is used by martial arts students.
