January 26th

For quite some time I saved up a bin of purple and gold fat quarters. We have been long time University of Washington fans. Lynn is a graduate. We have had football season tickets for over 30 years. It has been more of a struggle since we moved north 10 years ago. Now when we go to a home game, it is a 100 mile drive to the park and ride and then 100 miles again after. It's not too bad in the early fall games, especially with a noonish start time, but more games are being played later in the day, as late as 7 pm. So that makes for a very long day. Anyway, this is my official Husky Quilt! I take it to the games, and always have someone I walk by or ride on the bus with give me a nice compliment.

Sharon that quilt is worthy of all the compliments you have received and that I feel you will receive in the future. I love the quilting texture achieved - I like the feel of a closely quilted quilt with cotton batting. After being washed, they resemble antique quilts.

Gorgeous! I like that it doesn't scream out "I'm a Husky quilt". :)
And of course, I love the scrappiness of it.
