I made this quilt for one of this year's amazing graduates. She's pretty much one of my favorite people on the planet and she's off to U of M in the fall. I wanted to make something original for her so I created my own pattern for the (almost) accurate Michigan Block M. For the background I chose a fabric from the Glimma line that I think looks like the net found in almost every sport the Wolverines play.
Here's a close up of my maize and blue "Block M" block. This was my first attempt at creating my own pattern. (The color in the photo is off here. I have so much to learn regarding picture taking and editing.)
The back is mostly fleece with a stripe of maize and another M. I think I like it better than the front. The quilting is a pretty close meandering loop. I can't believe I missed taking a picture of the binding. It's also from the Glimma line.
Congratulations to all this year's amazing graduates!
