2016 Finish-Along ~ Third 4th Quarter Finish: Boxing Match

Happy to say that I managed to squeak in one more finish for this quarter ~ quilt #5 for my grandkids.  (Only 3 more to go!)

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!
