In the spring I participated in the Triangle Quilt Along and made a sweet Lizzy House Constellations triangle quilt that turned out amazing! The pattern is simple, yet striking enough, so I decided to make my brother-in-law a Ravens quilt with the same pattern for the football season so he can cheer his team on in style!
My brother-in-law is 6’ 6” tall, so I had to make this quilt HUGE! It’s the biggest quilt I’ve ever made, measuring 70” x 97” and it’s just big enough for a couch quilt. I wish I had time to take photos of the quilt up close, but it was raining the day I finished it and he was only visiting for the day, so we took pics during a lull in the storm. The fabrics in the quilt are really awesome—Julianna Horner prints in purple and slate, gold honeycomb dots and metro circles, and a large assortment of “manly” low volume prints.
The quilt is so big it almost didn’t fit on our living room floor!
I like that the quilt doesn’t scream sports fan on the front.
But it does on the back! I ordered this Ravens fabric from the Fat Quarter Shop. He was pretty thrilled to get this quilt and had been hinting at wanting one for a while. He said all his friends are going to be jealous, which is the best compliment a quilter can get!
Thanks for stopping by!
