Sports Letter Jackets Memory Quilt

Today I finished a unique quilt.

This one is made primarily from school sports letter jackets. Nice 40th  birthday gift for a guy to re-live his glory days, don’t you think?

Things I liked about this one:

I cut the ribbing off the bottoms of all the jackets and made the border/binding around the outside of the quilt with them;

 I found a buffalo check in his school colors for the back
(notice the strips are on the bias for contrast with the squares);

Quilting around lettering and graphics besides the
free-motion quilting make the front AND back interesting and textural
