Free Pattern Friday: Go, Team!

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

I’ve made two trips to Dallas in the last two weeks to help get my youngest kiddo and his roommate all set up for their second year at university. They are already doing well at this adulting business, making it to classes, finding jobs, and feeding themselves, all while hopefully sleeping more than I did when I was in college!

With that in mind, I’m revisiting a pattern I designed for the College Days Blog Hop back in 2014, Go, Team!

Go, Team! is 10″ paper pieced (10 1/2″ with seam allowance), and can be made in whatever team colors that best suit your purpose. My version was made in school colors for my daughter. 🙂

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!
