Ok, first I want to say that I don’t have an opinion on the U of U/BYU rivalry. That was my disclaimer. lol. So on to my quilt.
This is a quilt that i have actually made 2, almost 3 times. The 3rd ones blocks are all sewn together; I just need to put it together. Its been in this state for about 6 months. And I really need to finish it because its for one of my good friends. And husband keeps nagging me. He says, ” you know what you should do today? you should finish Matt’s quilt.” ha ha. I get it. Don’t worry Matt, I am hoping to have it done by Pats wedding.
So about this one. At the quilt shop I work at we try to always have U of U kits on hand. We are on the east bench and a lot of people in the area have relatives going to the U or they are alumni themselves. About 6 months ago my boss asked me to make a U quilt that would just always stay at the store since we always have the kits. That way we aren’t making the same quilt every 6 months.
Then about 4 months later we were out of kits but the quilt was still hanging up. A cute lady came in who really wanted to make the quilt but since we were out of kits she asked to buy the quilt. So we sold it to her. I can’t even begin to explain how good this made me feel about myself. Somebody wanted to buy a quilt that not only did I make, but that I also picked out all the fabric in. It was such an awesome feeling.
But since we sold the quilt I had to make another one.
Kits are at Elaine’s and they ship!
