Not really quilting but an honor my GS gave us

Kenneth C. Clark
has officially named my Senior Thesis Project, which is student dormitories for Alfred State College, the Buchanan Hall (a.k.a. 'The Quilt): New Student Living at Alfred State College. The facade should look almost like a patchwork quilt; a symbol of the diverse collection of students intended to live there.

Jayne, Is he actually going to build something to hang on the building that resembles a patchwork quilt? He has the right idea and the thought behind it is right on!

Wow, tell us more. I wasn't sure if you or your grandson wrote the senior thesis. What was the subject and how did it tie in with a dormitory, achitecture, and quilting? Will there be a quilt design in bricks and mortar? This is quite fascinating and congratulations!

He will be graduating in May from Alfred with an Architectureal Degree.
As senior thesis project he had to design an original plan for a proposed a New Student living quarters at the collage. The facade is designed so "it almost looks like a patchwork quilt"; thus the name:Buchanan Hall aka "The Quilt".
It is only his thesis but these design will be entered for consideration.
I was pleased that he use us (me and my quilt influence) as the name for his project. When he was in high school he designed and made a lap size quilt with my help from a painting he had done.

Thank you everyone. He does make me proud. He spent the last half of his Junior year studying in Italy which was a big thing for him. Jayne
