    This is the quilt that I made for my son for christmas. I learned that quilting letters is not an easy task. This is a once in a lifetime quilt.

    Great looking quilt.

    When I opened this, I was expecting a "John Wayne" quilt! ;-)

    I love the colors!! Nicely done.

    By the way, is that your own design? I took a second look and it's very creative.

    Yes, this is my own design. I just keep adding borders until it gets big enough. Probably not the best way to do things b/c there is always lots of ripping out and starting again. But I do enjoy the designing part.

    It looks great. I know it was difficult but the effort was worth it as it is impressive. He is lucky!

    Did you have a pattern for this or did you make it up. It is just beautiful. My daughter graduated from duke in 1991. She is in the US Army in Korea. She would love this.

    I took the logo off the internet and my daughter found a font that matched for the Duke Blue Devils. Everything else was make it up as you go. I liked the stripes and diamonds together. Was lucky to find the perfect blue at my LQS. Thanks for the complements. If you want me to give you the measurements for the different things just let me know.

    I would really like to make my daughter a lap quilt. Any measurements, etc. that you would be willing to give me would be greatly appreciated. I have seen several Duke quilts and this is the first one that I have really loved. Are you a basketball fan?

    Wonderful! The only improvement I can see would be if it were for the Arizona Wildcats :D

    I want to make a duke quilt for my cousin but I have never done a logo or letters. Do you have a leftover pattern or instructions?
