We Are… Penn State!

IMG_6091Here in Pennsylvania, there are two college sports rivals.  You either root for Pitt (University of Pittsburgh) or Penn State.

We have friends that are getting married in a few months and they tailgate during ALL the Penn State Home Football games.  I wanted to make a college spirit quilt but I wanted to do something unusual and unexpected from the usual “block” college quilts I see so much of.

I admire Jacquie Gering’s style of quilts and came across her “Supernova” quilt in her book QUILTING MODERN.  I took the idea and ran with it and love the way it turned out.

I took two different Penn State blue fabrics and mixed them up as I did the cutting.  Knowing this quilt is to be used and abused, I used the darker gray Kona Titanium and used just a bit of Kona Snow for the white to make it all pop.  The back is just the one Penn State blue (easy to hide a few drink spills and mud).

So cheers to a quilt to be filled with memories!
