Kentucky Wildcats Quilt

I told my 13 year old niece I would be making a quilt for her and wanted her input.  She said she wanted a University of Kentucky Quilt.  I, being a KY native and former crazed UK fan, was happy to comply.  I found a picture of a quilt online that was a replica of the UK  Rupp Arena basketball floor.  I decided to make that  quilt for her.  It turned out wonderful! I decided to do a bit of free form piecing on the back for a more modern look. There was a lot of applique work, which I enjoy. The hardest part was definitely the quilting.  The quilt measures 90 X100 so it was very hard to horse it through my small home machine!  Here it is!  Can't wait to see her face! :)
