Getting back to it

Wow. It's been a long time since I posted. Not too much sewing going on, but some. So let's get back in the posting swing of things with this finish.
Texas A&M zigzag quilt, 56 x 76.
The Texas A&M zigzag quilt for my niece is quilted, bound and soon to be mailed. I had pressed many of the seams open when I made the top, which caused me some distress when I was quilting. My plan was stitch in the ditch, which did not work well with those seams! I ended up stitching near the ditch not in it to make sure I caught the top fabric. I'll have to think things through more carefully next time.

Back of Texas A&M quilt, feet not included..
The back is leftover bits of the A& M fabric, which I don't want ending up in my scrap basket. Still have some little bits left. I was thinking maybe a pillow to get rid of them once and for all, but I really want to get this in the mail today so it might be the circular file for them.

I'm sure your niece will love this quilt. I love the movement of it and the color combo. Don't blame you for wanting to use up the A&M fabric. Love the pieced back.
