To all the party people who are happy and free (free), with K Buck M, we're making history.

This quilt is for a recent Fighting Irish alumna.  Like most Domers, she is an avid football fan and was the proud owner of MANY season and bowl game shirts.  Not opting for sashing between the blocks makes a very different look.

My trademark has been to keep what I call architectural elements of garments when possible.  The zipper hoodie square is quilted only on the perimeter, leaving the middle open so the shirt can be unzipped to see the 3 mini designs hidden underneath, 2 of which were from her academic department.

The bottom block was made from a nylon flag.  The recipient actually interned for the Discovery Channel while an undergrad. 

This is the Bengal boss inspecting my basting to make sure I am pinning the layers correctly.
