My Corner Purdue Quilt

This one is for Jerri to donate to an auction and I'm so happy to be able to make it for her.

Here's where it started:

Then it was in strips:

The strips sewn together and now it's starting to look like a state:

I tried to purchase the pattern from Quiltmakers in Fishers, but she didn't have any, even though she had the sample quilt still hanging in the shop. That's just strange to me??? It would be like me having quilting samples for my customers to look at and then saying to them, I can't do that kind of quilting.....

So, I bought the pattern for another Indiana school, just to get the correct shape and redrew the grid for Purdue.

I have a customer quilt to do tonight and tomorrow, but hope to get back to this one by Sunday.

I can't imagine wasting valuable shop space with a model but no pattern. Oh well, to each is own.

I will enjoy watching this project grow.

What gorgeous colours. Look forward to seeing the finished quilt.

As for having a sample hanging, but no patterns, that's just about as good as a garage trying to sell you a car without having one in stock to look at!

Since Quiltmakers is in the process of closing, it is possible that all the existing stock had been sold. Perhaps that was the problem.

I was at Quiltmakers today and asked if I could buy the sample since they are going out of business, but it was not for sale. I would love to have the pattern for the Purdue version.

Send me your address and I'll send it to you. I actually picked it up at our guild white elephant table after I had purchased the South Bend one and converted the chart to purdue colors. So, I don't really need it anymore.
