This queen-sized quilt was made for an alumna of Wake Forest who is now a law student at William and Mary. As you can see, she also is a member of the Pi Beta Phi woman’s fraternity. Yay, Monmouth Duo!!
This quilt incorporated some unusual fabrics. The Wake Forest fans wave around a Rally Rag (lowest row, center) at the games. This is a small terrycloth towel. Apparently by joining the Screamin’ Demons. students can pay $30 per season to sit in the student section of the athletic arenas. They are given the black and gold tie-dye shirt (top right-hand corner) to wear at the games.
I cut the greek letters from the extra fabric of the Screamin’ Demon shirt. These letters are the same size as the letters that you would see a sorority girl wear on a sweatshirt or jersey. I satin-stitched both the white outline fabric and the Screamin Demon fabric with a stabilizer. The grey was from the back of one of the grey shirts used in the quilt
As usual, I kept anything 3-D on the blocks if possible. I was able to retain the pocket on the hoodie block and the drawstring and buttons on the lounge pants.. I used surplus fabric from the lounge pants to make the large WF block.
The neckerchief (center) had a very large design so it needed to be cut no smaller than 18″ x 18″. T-shirt quilt blocks are usually 15″ x 15″ so I had to find 4 shirts that would lend themselves to be longer than normal and four that could be wider. The fabric I chose for the sashing, borders, and binding was mostly black and gold but with touches of mauve and grayish-blue which are close to the Wine and Silver Blue of Pi Beta Phi. I quilted this fabric with a light yellow thread which gave it a cloisonné look.
