This queensized quilt is made for an Oakton alumna/current Duke Blue Devil. She will be getting married to another Duke grad shortly after graduation so this will definitely fit in their decor.
She wanted a more random layout than most so the blocks were cut in multiple sizes. Neither sashing nor borders were desired so it was simply edged with binding.
This shirt was completely covered with quotes written in puffy paint. This was a spirit shirt made with her cross-country team. The quotes ran onto the sleeves so the block ended up being a fat apital T as opposed to the typical quadrilateral. The recipient was also a swimmer so we incorporated her team bathing suit.
The recipient is very devout so in addition to the shirts from religious camps and teen organizations, the backing was pieced as a basic cross in Duke colors.
