I had been trying to make a quilt for my brother-in-law, Todd, for years. I knew that I wanted to make it mostly red or red and black and work with the UNM Lobo / dog theme, but I had really been struggling to find a pattern and fabric I liked. I’m just not a red person, so I thought that was my problem. After working on the log cabin quilt with my mom for Baby Dare, I thought it would be pretty easy to expand the pattern into a lap sized quilt. I also happened to stumble upon some fantastic red and black fabric online, and I was off to the races. I am really proud of how this quilt turned out. I spelled out “U N M L A W” in the centers of the log cabin blocks. By far, one of the best quilts I’ve made so far and probably the one I’m currently the most proud of.
