    Pictures of a Virginia Tech quilt I made my son

    I've had the material forever and was afraid to start - wondering how it would look with mainly all maroon and orange material like he wanted. And it's hard to find fabric that isn't feminine. I made his a sample pot holder and liked it, so it gave me the incentive to start. I started in August of last year. He didn't want a queen-size, thank goodness. I got really tired of those tiny half square triangles. He was thrilled with his quilt, and I was pleased too.

    Beautiful quilt.
    What I make with my hands, I give with my heart.

    I like it very much - those HST would have driven me crazy, but you did a great job with it. (I would like to insert a college rivalry reference here involving old gold and black's superiority, but I would hate to offend anybody...)

    Really beautiful quilt. I grew up in Lexington. Went to Lexington Senior High and graduated in 1973. What high school did you attend? I have lived near Hickory for the past 32 years.

    What size are your hst's? And you are right about finding manly fabrics, not easy but you did great. Your quilt is awesome. Just goes to show you a simple block can be beautiful. (however I don't really mean that that many HSTs are simple or easy!)
