A Little Info

I’m terrible about assuming things.  I know what meaning different parts of the LHS Reunion quilt have but you probably don’t because I didn’t take time to explain and I just assumed you would read my mind.  Lol.

I graduated from Livingston High School—Livingston, AL (Sumter county) in 1970.  Our class was small….only 41 students…I think. We’ve had a few reunions here and there.   For some reason, this reunion seems like a milestone and at 40 years, I guess it is.

Our school mascot was the Gamecock.  My rendition of the bird has taken a little artistic license.  I looked all over the web at Gamecock images before drawing mine.  Some of the blocks have no real meaning to our class.  I just liked the way the blocks fit the quilt.

There are several plain blocks and centers of other blocks that will be used for signatures.  Remember that signature quilts are my very favorite???  If needed, people can sign in the border.  We went to Hobby Lobby this afternoon to get some new fabric friendly pens.  I’m getting ready to iron freezer paper on the back of the siggy squares.

Here’s a breakdown of the elements of the quilt:

1970—Year of graduation

2010—Current year

40—40th anniversary of graduation

Gamecock Applique—School Mascot

Large pieced block on the right—“Gamecock” block–again for our mascot

LHS—Livingston High School

Red and Black—Our school colors

The different star blocks are just there because I like them.  🙂

My former classmates will probably think I’m cuckoo…maybe even more so than they already did…for making a quilt for this reunion.  Only a quilter would understand.  🙂

    So proud of ya for sticking with it…great quilt! Good idea to incorporate all the areas for signatures and little messages. Don’t forget to carry a pocket of Pigma markers!
