I was lucky enough to have the quilt I made for Mitchell chosen by Madame Samm of Sew We Quilt as one of four quilts for the February Banner. There were 321 quilts submitted so can you imagine my surprise when I got Madame Samm's email! I made this quilt before I had my blog. So I thought I'd tell you about it now.
The official name for this quilt is “Mitchell’s As Close To A Collingwood Quilt That He Will Get”. A funny name, I agree but I’ll explain.
Mitchell is a die-hard Collingwood Football Club supporter (he doesn't usually wear shorts and thongs to the footy!). Collingwood is an Australian Rules Football team. Their colours are black and white stripes. Collingwood is the team you either love or hate! Needless to say, I do not barrack for Collingwood. Hence, the name.
Mitchell asked me for a black and white quilt. I used the stack and slash method. It came together very quickly and I had it commercially quilted. When I checked the label, it was made back in 2008. I can’t believe it was that long ago!
