I feel like I need to begin with a brief disclaimer. I am not a University of Utah Alum. In fact, I attended their rival school, BYU. At least they were rivals WAAAY back when I went to school. Are they even rivals anymore? I guess it depends on who you ask.
Anyway, my local quilt shop needed this quilt made as a display quilt and I had time so I volunteered. It's a quick pattern - I think I had the quilt done in just a few days! The quilt finished at 55" x 64" and I quilted it in an easy meandering pattern with some loops thrown in.
I’m not usually a fan of the red / black / white color combo, but once this quilt was finished I had to admit that it is quite striking. In fact, my oldest son came in and proclaimed “I LOVE this quilt! Can I have it?” My response: “NO! This quilt doesn't belong in our house. I’ll make you another red / black / white quilt that has no affiliation with any University.” Ha!
[Quilt details: A friend of mine wrote the pattern and the quilt shop has kits available now for both the U of U quilts and the BYU version. If you're not local you can call the shop and order one over the phone: 801-225-3123]
