This quilt was conceived and started for my niece Sarah when she started college at UK. The colors, blue and white, were picked because they are UK's colors. However, it was put on hold for a while as was Sarah's college education, when Sarah became pregnant with our beautiful great niece, Grace, and subsequently married Jeremiah. So, instead of a college graduation present, it became a Christmas present in 2007, when I drew Sarah's name.
The quilt was made with 9-patches, each containing nine different fabrics. Several of the fabrics appear in each block, but there is also a number of fabrics which are used much less frequently. I hand quilted it with perle cotton.
