Traditions Quilt

Another finish! I have been working on this quilt for months. It was made for a friend who so generously gives me IU basketball tickets to games she doesn't want to attend. She won't let me pay her and I've been trying to figure out how to reciprocate in some way. While at her home one day, I noticed a wall with clamps to hold a quilt. I mentioned them to her and she didn't realize what their purpose was. She was excited to finally figure it out. I immediately decided to make her a quilt; she asked that I match her decor and use a traditional block.

The traditional block was hard for me. My quilts usually have a contemporary twist to them. So while I didn't enjoy the process and the colors weren't my favorite, I looked forward to finishing this quilt for my friend.
