The Basketball quilt had been patiently waiting to be quilted for far too long. I purchased the kit back in March 2015. I made progress on piecing here and here. But then I didn't know how to quilt it, so I procrastinated...and procrastinated...and then procrastinated some more.
But then my nephew fell while playing basketball in early December and fractured his ankle. He is unhappy because he has to wear a walking boot for at least six weeks and can't play basketball. So the rush was on to finish the quilt.
I decided to do loop FMQ in a brown variegated thread.
I didn't have enough of the blue basketball print for the back, so had to be creative with the little bits of leftover fabric from the front.
I'm linking up my finish with: TGIFF hosted by Faith and Fabric; Finish it Up Friday hosted by Crazy Mom Quilts; Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? hosted by Confessions of Fabric Addict; and Whoomp There It Is! hosted by A Quilted Passion.
