This quilt by Karen was made for a Kansas State fan. She is new to quilting but I think she did an excellent job piecing this ambitious pattern.
I tried to do a more "manly" quilting design and like how this one turned out. It makes me think of a fancy paint job on a hotrod motorcycle. Irish chains are tricky to quilt with all those diagonal sections and then the big open spaces which are flattened on the edges of the quilt.
And then there are those tricky little grey squares that looked perfect for a little star inside. I somehow managed to have Karen go from hating everything about this quilt to loving it. Woo-woot!
