sorority quilt

Here are some pix of my quilt I made for my neice who recently joined a sorority (Alpha Xi Delta). I donated it to the chapter. I spent a huge amount of time digitizing their crest & badge, and while it is hard to see, the applique gals have their own badges (one has the new member and the other has the "quill"). There is a heart shape with a girl holding a teddy bear (one of their symbols) and another with their philantropic organization's logo. The "sorority flower" is a pink rose, so I used a chanille strip product to contruct 3D pink roses. THe back side has the 10 founders' names embroidered in gold stars (because their "offical flag" had 10 gold stars to symbolize the founders).My thought was for the girls to sign the back to add their names to the those who started the organization.

What a fantastic quilt! I do hope they appreciate all the planning and work that went into that one. It should be hung in a place of honor in the sorority house. Congratulations on a very nice quilt.

RE: sorority quilt

thanks for your kind words.. I can't take full credit I modified a pattern from a book and used a different book (same author) for the applique gals...I was pretty excited how it turned out. I don't have any girls, so my nieces are the lucky recipients of my work.. I am going to have to start another sorority quilt for my other neice...
