Get in the game you gotta scheme All the same I've got the team

This quilt was a Father's Day present for a HUGE all-sports Cincinnati fan.  He follows the professional teams, the NCAA colleges, and even some of the high school sports.

 His wife asked for NO sashing between the blocks and wanted red borders despite the red t-shirt in the corner.

The tiger shows some microquilting on its nose.  Microquilting is done the same way as stippling but much closer, similar to the comparison of petit point and needlepoint.

A professor of science 'cause I keep droppin' it I smell weak 'cause y'all keep poppin' it

This quilt is for a Furman Palladin.  Like many college students she was very active in extracurriculars at school. 
She was a health sciences major and participated in several fundraisers for improvements to third-world countries.  She was an equestrienne, a runner, and a bibliophile.

My signature technique of incorporating the architectural element of the garment  ie the usable pockets was able to be incorporated once again. :)
