RBD Back-to-School Blog Tour

Throw Me A Curve Sports Throw by Deonn Stott, 60" x 60"
featuring School Colors by Riley Blake Designs:
Chevrons, Dots, Solids, Houndstooth
Can't believe it's time to get back to school already - seems like a such a short summer!  For us, since our kids are all out of high school, our participation in local school events is mainly theater productions or sporting events.

And what better way to keep up our school spirit strong than with a snuggly sports throw in school colors!

And, why not make it easy to carry?  
Perfect for a stadium seat.

Or, open it up for a pre-game picnic.  (Wasn't that sweet of the boys to hold their practice just so I could get some pictures?)

Then, when it gets a little nippy, wrap it around and enjoy the game!

I'll follow up in a few days with some instructions for turning a quilt into a pack-along!  Stay tuned, or follow along for updates.

I loved making this quick throw.  Big, easy "ten-minute" dimensional blocks, quick machine applique' of a few block letters, and...

"We've got SPIRIT, yes we do!
We've got SPIRIT, how about you?"

Check in daily with this Riley Blake Designs
Back to School Blog Tour through the end of the month
to see more great Back-to-School project ideas.

Then, be sure to stop by Riley Blake Designs
on September 4th for a wrapup of the blog tour
and a great GIVEAWAY!  Now, that's the spirit!!


  1. What a great looking carry-along blanket! Love the design, fabrics, and colors!

  2. Mine would have to be Purple & Gold or Blue and White. I'll be back to see how you made it pack-able.

  3. such a good idea to make a bag to keep quilts in very nice

  4. That is fabulous! I love its practicality as well as its design.

  5. I LOVE this!!! The colors are perfect too!!! Can't wait to see how you make it a pack-along!!

  6. I too can't wait to see how you make it into a pack-along blanket, but I'd love to make one for my friend in TX who goes to Friday Night to find her team colours without her realizing why!


  7. makes so much sense to make it into what we here call a quillow, so much easier to carry


So happy you stopped by for a visit! Thank you!
