This quilt is for the wife of a dentist. She is a runner extraordinaire competing in races from 10Ks to full marathons. This is especially admirable considering she has 3 kids and is a physical therapist.
All of the shirts are from races in or just outside the District. Consequently many of the racing designs incorporate images of gorgeous cherry blossoms or the stately monuments. I found a fabric that evoked a feel of cherry blossom pink along with her favorite shade of University of Tennessee orange.
My “guest photographer” took the pictures for this quilt, hence the unusual angle of the above photograph.
