Online Market Quilt Showcase 11 – Stadium/School Colors Quilts

Second to last post! The Yellow Daisy Festival Online Market ends tomorrow, Sunday, Sept 13th at 9 pm. I’ve been making some posts about the quilts I have ready to go. Each day I’ve featured two or three quilts and tell about their process and what I like most about them. These and other quilts can be found in the Quest Quilts shop on this website or in my Etsy shop.

These little 4′ x 4′ quilts have been around for a while. When I first started making ready-made quilts, I made a bunch in the colors of the local schools, especially ones where I knew my shows would be close to. They’re also conveniently the colors of college and pro teams as well. I liked the idea of school colors but with a subtle nod. I’ve sold a good many, actually, but these last five have hung around. I actually have a bib for the orange and blue, so it would make a good baby gift.

When I made these, I was thinking about people using them on those cold bleachers in the stands while watching football games or band members cuddling up with them during that 3rd quarter break. I remember freezing at many a football game, clutching my mellpphone.

I made these a smaller 4′ x 4′ size so that they could go across a single lap without dragging the ground. I don’t know for sure, but there is a part of me that also thinks they would be a good size for someone who was wheelchair bound.

They are also, conveniently, the perfect size to layout for a baby while outside. The orange and blue quilt has a matching bib, but I would also gladly make a matching bib for any of the other stadium quilts as well if someone wanted it as a baby gift.
