I haven't posted a quilt or project yet on this blog and at one point I wondered if I would even complete the Black and White Challenge. After I finished my daughter's graduation quilt I realized: Hey! This quilt is black, white and Eagles green! A light went off in my head. I was shocked to realize I made my challenge quilt and didn't even know it. Ha.
If you read my blog you know this isn't my favorite quilt. But that aside, it works for what it is for - Jamie and her love of football and the Eagles and to commemorate her graduation in 2009.
And technically the quilt has "light black" in it, too. But I'm sayin' that is ok. Deal? The quilt has actually grown on me now that I'm done messing with the fabric and deciding what to do with it. It will look great in Jamie's room and it will always be something that I can remember I made in 2009. I had it machine quilted by an edge to edge quilter. I picked out a "graduation 2009" theme for the quilting. And it says 2009 on the quilt. So it is perfect for the challenge. Too bad the quilter quilted the pattern on the back of the quilt so the 2009 is backwards on the front. It is a good thing Jamie is easy to please. It will always bug me, but oh well. It is just fabric after all.
But I am certainly celebrating my 2009 Black and White challenge finish! Yayyy.
