College Quilt Patterns


First of all, I’d like to thank my friend Soma @ Whims and fancies for inviting me to play along with the other designers on the College Days Blog Hop. Lots of fun!

College days blog hop


So, when brainstorming for a “college days” block to design, I automatically thought about keggers….what?  I was a non-traditional college student. I worked a full-time desk job. I would then leave work and take a couple college classes in the evenings. It took me 6 years to graduate. :) I went to a few college parties, but probably not as many as regular college kids. So, I thought it would be fun to have a block inspired by that fun and craziness that college can represent…to some. :) Enter the ubiquitous Solo cup. We’ve all seen the glaringly red cups strewn about at a party…college kids or not. Am I right? For added excitement, I placed my Solo cup model on the beach under some fun bunting. I really wish I was at the beach now. Sigh.

Anyway, here is my version of the Spring Break in a Cup Block. I am sure it’s filled to brim with your drink of choice. Or maybe some cheap beer? Bottoms up! Enjoy!
