Go Team! (free pattern)
or…get it on Craftsy (also free!)
a 10″ pattern to paper piece
The College Days blog hop comes at a time when we’re just a few weeks away from my own daughter returning to her university for her second full year of college studies.
We live in Texas, and the fall in Texas means football. I’m a high school marching band mom and I won’t lie, I’m not much of a sports fan…I attend games for the music!
Anyway, while thinking about how to tackle this pattern, one thing kept coming back to me: the university bunting I myself hung on my wall while in college. All universities have a team of some variety, whether it be football, baseball, rugby or quidditch!
Need some help with paper piecing?
Check out my FREE full-length paper piecing workshop!
Go Team in UNT Mean Green colors. Caw!
The are the colors of my alma mater, Sul Ross State University!
This is for The University of Texas, my hubby’s favorite.
My brilliant friend and faithful pattern tester, Amber, suggested that this design would be perfect in Hogwarts House colors. She is, of course, absolutely right!

Yay, your post is up…I’ve been waiting with baited breath. Loving your block. Sorry, don’t have any favourite team or alma mater. For this block I will likely use our high school colours…blue and gold. Still hemming and hawing over your vintage paper pieced quilt pattern, only because I don’t want it to just languish on my shelf waiting for its turn to be done LOL…Thanks again…love the addition of lettering in this block!
Thank you, I’m so happy you were excited about my block! This was such a fun one to put together and I was happy to share. 🙂
A really fun pattern!! Thanks so much for making it for the blog hop, Jennifer!!
Thanks for the awesome pattern!!! The team I cheer for….Vanderbilt!!!
Your pendants are wonderful. I did a happy birthday one a while back and did appliqué. I love your work.
Another wonderful pattern, this will be great in gold and black!!
My favorite University team is Michigan State–Green & White.
Your block looks great! And I love the way it can be customised for different team colours 🙂
Thanks for the new block.
Love this pattern and how easily it can be customized. Beyond colleges it could also easily be used for your favorite football, soccer, or whatever team sport.
