    GO IU! My latest.

    My aunt who lives in Kentucky is a HUGE IU fan! She has custom plates on her car with IU on them and hangs an IU flag on her front porch in the heart of KU territory. She wanted a new quilt for her bed and requested an IU one of course. This is what I came up with. It and the shams are reversible just incase she wants to change things up a bit.

    My husband and I are going down there this week to give it her. I can't wait.

    Thank you for stopping for a view and comment.

    beautiful, love the quilting
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    What a beautiful gift. You can tell you really put a lot of effort into your design and to make it reversible is just pure genius. You are a great niece. Two of my niece's didn't even send acknowledgements when I sent their first born daughters hand smocked dresses. Needless to say, I quit sending. Love it, even if I'm not an IU fan.

    Goiu!

    I am so glad I saw your gift when I did so I could join in with the compliments. This is so pretty, versatile, and you are so talented. Did you design it or use a pattern? Whichever, wonderful. Wish I could be your neice. Keep up the good work!!

    Outstanding!!! IU doesn't print fabric like a lot of other schools do and I wanted to see what you had done. It is GREAT. How talented you are.

    It was my design but reminds me a something you might see on a cheerleaders uniform. It didn't look that way in the design process but when I finished the top, that is what I saw. LOL!

    I don't if I could have done it if the request were for 'black and gold'. LOL

    Thank you.
