Beaver Nation Quilt

For those who were wondering what I could POSSIBLY be making with all those horrendous orange and black fabrics – here is the completed quilt!

I made this rag quilt for my friend Laura.  She and her husband Shawn are active Oregon State University alumni.

This quilt is bright and obnoxious and fun, which is PERFECT for college football games!

Let me tell you, it was hard to find orange and black fabrics.  They only seem to be available around Halloween, and you’re lucky if they don’t have bats or pumpkins or witches on them.  It took 3 years to collect these.

Originally this was to be a disappearing 9 patch, but I’m glad I changed my mind and made it a rag quilt instead.  I think it’s softer and more cuddly.
