Did you know Wolverines mate for life? Well, maybe not the animal, but Phil and Katie, two Michigan University Wolverines, have! Customer Cassie P. had this Michigan Go Blue quilt created for her friends who met on the Ann Arbor campus and married last year.
Cassie wanted a simple design, but still modern, for her gift and I think this traditional Michigan “M” on a field of maize next to “Go Blue” on a field of blue is the perfect mix. With the alternating borders, the design kind of says “vintage varsity” to me, but in a contemporary way. The couples’ wedding date was embroidered in the lower left corner by my good friend Shirley at Embroidery by Shirley.
The Michigan fight song may be “The Victors” but I think the victors here are Phil and Katie who have such a great friend in Cassie!
