My grandson Nathan is a big Detroit Tigers fan, so of course his quilt had to be Tigers-themed. I thought Boxing Match, the pattern by Nancy Mahoney for Quiltmaker (Sept/Oct 2015) was perfect for showing off those fabrics.
I did end up changing the orange Kona fabric to a deeper orange to coordinate better with the Old English D.
I kept the quilting simple, following the lines of the skinny strips. I thought it made an interesting plaid pattern in the end ~ you can see it really well on the back of the quilt.
Love the front ~ very bold with the navy and orange on a white background!
