Really Random Quilt #2

This one was slightly harder than the first random quilt. For this one, she requested OU, Steelers, and Angels...not exactly things that go together!


However, I have a ton of OU and Steeler scraps, so I started hunting for something that would work while she hunted for Angels fabric.

Which, turns out there's not any! She lucked out on a 8x15" slab on eBay, and pilfered one of her son's t-shirts. Since we had almost no Angels fabric, I wanted to make the most of what we had.

I was drawn to this pattern, done in OSU by Kate from Life in Pieces, mixed with this quilt by Kati from the blue chair. Mostly, I liked the randomness of Kati's but the slab piecework {and therefore no 90º corner seams} of Kate's.


This is as close to improv piecing I'll ever get...all the main blocks are 12.5", unplanned until I started each one. And I really doubted the process the entire time, especially the negative space in the corners. 

But now that it's done...I love it! I can't say it turned out the way I pictured it, because I didn't really have a "picture" plan, but I think it turned out really well.

I mean, how else would you blend all these fabrics? {Which started a debate about letting children in the same household support OSU/Packers vs. OU/Steelers.}

The solid is Kona Marine and the backing is black minky. {Yes, this is her fourth quilt backed in the same minky.}
