Past and Present "Go Team" Quilt

Coles_quilt_1

When my sweet baby brother started college, he had a ton of t-shirts from all his high school teams. 

Choosing the most interesting  of each t-shirt, I backed it with stabalizer and cut 12 x 12 squares.  I cut an equal number of squares in red and blue (his new college colors) and sewed them together. 

Then, using red yarn I hand tied it through batting and backing, placing a tie every six inches. 

At that point, I ran out of time and took it to someone a little more speedy to finish up the edges.
