Happy New Year! We were super dull last night but we did mange to stay up until 1130. I know, woot woot. We watched the movie Funny People. loved it!
This was a super secret undercover gift project. As I am sure you know, making a quilt is pretty time consuming and trying to do this without the recipient knowing who also happens to live in your house is pretty darn complicated. Luckily, Gregg works a lot and he had a couple of on-call nights. A couple of the on call nights he got off earlier than expected, I was trying to sound excited when he called saying he was coming home, but really I was frantically hiding all the evidence. There was also one Saturday morning when he went off to study and I shamelessly stuck Lilly in front of the TV with breakfast then ran back to my sewing machine. All of that sneaking around paid off. On Christmas morning, he had NO idea!
Gregg did almost all of his undergrad and then stayed on to receive his masters at University of Oregon. He is in love with Oregon. He will always be a Duck fan at heart.
He is now a med student at Penn State. He loves med school here. I thought it would be fun for his blanket to have a little bit of both.
Details: He loved this blanket so much that I did the Oregon side much like it with big random rectangles of fabric. I quilted it long lines that are not straight at all in gray thread and binded it in kona cotton in coal. I really like how the gray looks with both sides.
Size: 48 x 62
What a great day to snuggle with his blanket too as both teams have their bowl games today!
