In honor of my son receiving tenure at Pepperdine University, I made this quilt in the colors of his graduate school, Duke University, where he spent the first 7 years of his marriage earning his doctorate and where our grandson, Benjamin, was born.
Although the strips are straight, the arrangement gives it an optical illusion of curves.
"D" is for the Duke Blue Devils with its outstanding basketball team and coach "K".
I machine quilted triple diagonals and hand embroidered my congratulations.
The pattern came from Best of the Best Quilts by Leslie Beck,
pg. 106, called "Autumn Lights".
