The Bible says, "We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us." If quilting had a Bible, it would say "We know what real love is when we receive handmade quilts using multiple, non-coordinating licensed prints."
This quilt attests to the fact that I love my dad. He requested a quilt showcasing all of the Detroit sports teams (except the Red Wings). If you are not from the Detroit area, let me show you what this entails. They don't match at all!
And it translates to this with licensed prints (the Tigers don't have licensed cotton prints).
After some serious procrastinating I had a conversation with Julie who suggested using solids only - brilliant! I saw this photo on Flickr, which is actually quite similar to the rough idea I had in mind already, so I went with it.
I now present you round 1 - Detroit Lions blocks.
I think they actually look pretty good! We'll see how this goes once the other three color groups are mixed in.
