A Frat House Crest
The Sigma Alpha Epsilson Fraternity long ago adopted this crest as their iconic symbol. When a friends hubby wished to honor a frat brother with a 'Fraternity Quilt', his wife came to me to 'ink' the crest. It was a heck of a lot easier than applique for certain. I inked this 20" x 30" image on a cream colored sateen which admittedly soaked up ink like crazy but also produced a nice even finish color. Click on the photo for a closeup view. It's heat set and done, and will be off to my friend Laurie Lyon to incorporate the crest panel into the gift quilt.
