Ole Miss® lap quilt completed

Hello friends. Pictured above is a lap quilt made with Ole Miss® print fabric. The pattern is called Simply Rectangles, and is designed by Gudrun Erla. The pattern is included in the book Just Your Style. 'Got lucky and paid only $7.00 instead of $24.99, due to the fact that our local Hancock Fabric Store closed recently. What a shock, as the store had been here for like 40 years. This quilt was a 2 1/2 year project. Ole Miss® is my alma mater, and finding this fabric in Alabama was not going very well. So, Etsy to the rescue! This lap quilt measures 45"X57", with meandering style machine quilting all over. 'Did a different kind of look for the backing- to see it, follow the link below my signature.
The backing is solid blue with a narrow row of Ole Miss ® fabric near the lower edge. Below that, the backing is solid red. 'Got both official school colors in that way. The lower left label was designed by me and printed at Spoonflower.com. It has the pattern designer's name, my name and the date. 'Decided to go with a solid white binding for contrast. All fabrics are 100% cotton. Before college, I never really thought about NCAA football. My alma mater is special to me. 'Hoping this quilt will keep me warm while watching TV every winter.
