    I decided to make a Marshall Quilt as a wedding gift for some friends. We all graduated together a few years ago. It was machine pieced and hand quilted.

    Since we are all big football fans, it has 67 footballs quilted into it. I used a stencil to draw them on. The back of the quilt is a stripe from the football helmets that Marshall players wear. It turned out to be about 48" x 60" after washing and drying.
