A quilt finish! Wow, it has been a while since I finished a quilt. My ankle surgery slowed me down, but now I'm back to near-normal.
This pattern is called "Rookie Quarterback" and is from Robinson Pattern Company. I made it as a present for a certain mid-western football fan, and had my son help me choose which brown and white fabrics to use. More information on fabrics is included below.
Man does this quilt go together quickly! I cut it out ahead of time, and then assembled it on the first night of the Sewtopia retreat in New Orleans. It took maybe an hour, but I love it's simple graphic design.
I wanted this quilt to be super snuggly and soft, so I backed it in red "cuddle"
fabric. Quilting with this high-pile fuzzy fabric isn't my favorite thing to do, so I had it quilted by Lora at Quilts by Grace. I chose a panto called "Lincoln Logs" that I now can't find anywhere on the internet. Regardless, it had the overall consistent texture that I was after for this project.
I made the lap size version of this quilt, so it finished at about

Quilting: Longarm quilted using the Lincoln Log Pantograph.
