Seminole / Crimson Tide Quilt

Share

How do you make a quilt for a man that loves two teams? Incorporate both of them into it of course! I made this quilt for Danny Danford who has always loved Alabama and later became a big fan of FSU. It features the Florida State University Seminole and the University of Alabama Big Al (elephant) mascots surrounded by collegiate fabric from each school. The quilt top also contains fabric with football and tailgating prints with the balance completed in the colors of each team. The back and the white in the top are our 108” wide Tone on Tone White Circles fabric. Hobbs 80/20 Heirloom batting was used and I stipple quilted it. Enjoy Danny!
