The other day I was looking at it and realized it qualifies (loosely) for my Black and White Challenge 2009 quilt! Yayy. Jackie invited me to join her and so many other quilters I know and admire, to participate in the challenge. Jackie made a blog to showcase our progress, called The Black and White Challenge Project. So today I'm posting on that blog as well to declare my challenge complete.
I made Jamie dress up to recreate the big graduation day. For some reason her high school let the kids keep their cap and gowns (at least that is what she told me). So here she is modeling her quilt. I'm finally letting her have it only months after, but hey. It's done.
The quilt really is black, white and Eagles green. Football season is starting up so the quilt will be well used as Jamie decorates the family room with Eagles memorabilia for every game. When I started making the quilt I had no idea I would be fulfilling my Black and White Challenge, too. When I was looking at it I realized that it is perfect except for a little bit of gray in the quilt. That might be technically cheating but I'm calling gray a light black instead of gray. That works doesn't it?
