The 7th Annual EHS (Enterprise High School, Redding CA) Football Dinner Auction will be held this Saturday 4/27/2013. I was asked by agood friend to make a stadium blanket for the event. The EHS Hornets rock the Black & Gold for their school colors! Nicole chose the fabrics to coordinate with the school colors and mascot. She provided a description of the quilt pattern she liked.
The quilt is made from 100% cotton. The batting is Warm & Natural. A wavy decorative machine stitch was used to quilt all the layers together.
The small squares are cut 4.5″x4.5″ and sewn in a random 9 patch pattern.
The large squares are cut 12.5″ x 12.5″.
To get the bee applique pattern I copied the fabric and enlarged the photo to fit a 8.5″x11″ piece of paper.
The embroidery stitch used around the bee is called Blanket Stitch. I used several strands of a sparkling gold thread to add drama. The antennas are made from synthetic cord.
