When You Say Wisconsin

The Wisconsin Badger quilt is done!  My son loves it and I am so pleased with the way it turned out.  
I used all the reds, blacks, whites that I had in my stash only buying the black background for this quilt.  I have the Wisconsin fabric in my stash since everyone here is a Badger fan.  The only fabric I added to this was the monkeys - see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil.  It was just fitting that piece be in the quilt and the dish that ran away with the spoon.  I found those two fat quarters while in Paducah.  

See that crazy border - thank goodness there was only two - those are cut 1.5" and yes I sewed all of those together.  I am happy to say that young son did notice them and thought they look pretty good!  Such a compliment right?!  I quilted them separately than the rest of the quilt.

I did the rest of the quilt in meandering squares.  I do like this pattern.  I quilted it on the Juki (which I love) with black Auril thread.

I have to say on this one I like the back almost as much as the front!

Here is one more photo of my hubby holding it up.  

This one finishes at 88" x 89" and fits his full size bed nicely.  He still likes to wrap up in it too.  The pattern was from a the calendar by Weeks and Ringle.

This is one I can cross off the list from the Q3 Goals and am linking up the finish.  


  1. Wow! This quilt is so impressive. I can see why you like the back as much as the front. Perfect for a bed or for cuddling.

  2. This is a real WOW quilt - such an eye catcher! The colours look amazing - love all those reds xx.

  3. Looks great! I love that border AND the monkeys are adorable. What a fun finish!

  4. Awesome Badgers quilt! I love the tiny borders... totally worth it!
