College Quilts

Mom’s been busy working on our latest joint quilt…for a nephew heading off to college. The pattern is modified from an quilt in an old McCall’s magazine and one we’ve used several times.

    OH! I know I have that pattern. I think I better dig it out…my son is just a freshman, but he already has senior friends. This would be a good one to have at the ready. Thanks for showing us different colleges too. (I am almost ready to put my churn dash and stars in rows. I love the impression of circles. 1st time using my Tri-recs set. Love ’em already)

    These are so pretty. I love the 2 color contrasts of each quilt. The lettering is nice too. Thanks for sharing! I did finally finish the double 4 patch quilt for my son. It is on his bed. Turned out nice. Thanks so much for sharing patterns with us.

    You know that I LOVE my VT but the colors are difficult to work with. I have to say that this is the least tacky VT quilt I have ever seen! Why couldn’t we have been Maroon and Gold,Maroon and Gray, Maroon and Black or anything less offensive than Maroon and Orange?

    I had to laugh out loud on this post! (Not at your quilts, they are beautiful!) I believe after you shared your pattern with me, the first two quilts looked like yours. For some reason, I lost the pattern but thought I could remember it. Well, it morphed into something different. LOL! I have a picture of mine up on my blog today.

    So funny!

    I LOVE these quilts! I’ve been wanting to make a school quilt for my nephew but couldn’t decide on a pattern. Now I know what I want to do! Thanks, Mary

    Great quilts. My daughter will be going off to college in a year and a half, will have to start thinking about something like this.

    My alma mater is among those represented here. My hubby, who also attended the same school, has been designing a VT quilt for me to make him. I’ll show him yours. . . maybe he’ll just go with it instead!

    Are there instructions for this quilt somewhere or is it a pattern? This would be an awesome graduation quilt. I love how all of them are just a little bit different with either the lettering or color choices.

    I’m interested in your college quilt pattern. I tried searching your web site, but did not see it. Would you be willing to share it?
    Thank you,
