This summer, I found these cool University of Kentucky fabrics
online at Hancock.
I bought half a yard of all 4 pieces and started searching online
for some inspiration.
It did not take long to come across the wonky star quilt pattern.

This was going to be my quilting project while the kids were in school.
But it was also going to be a surprise for the biggest UK fan in my life.
A surprise that I was going to try and keep hidden till December 20.
I was able to keep it hidden for 3 months. But once I put it

Even though it is only October,
Happy 16th Anniversary Larry Denzil.
