    OK guy's, I got my big helmet cut and pinned for the center of the quilt. The helmet is 29 by 29 and is on a white square 32 by 32. I didn't think I could do it without a pattern but I did it YEAH. The rest should be a piece of cake, I HOPE :(
    So how you like?????????

    Great helmet !! You are soooooooo clever. I would have just done the squares, etc. I like your idea a lot. And I bet he will too. Give him a pat on the back from me for all those good grades.

    I got the fabric and the backing only problem is I could not get enough of the fabric with the NY Giants logo. So my idea is to make:
    -a big helmet with some of the royal blue as the center of the quilt
    -cut out the helmets and the name out of the logo fabric and applique to white squares
    -cut the foot ball and the numbers out of the other fabric and applique to white, red and blue squares.
    -the last fabric will be my backing.
    Does that make sense????
    I welcome suggestions
    Oh dear, I'd better not let my fiancé see that Giants fabric! We've something of a rivalry going... he's a Giants fan, I'm a Patriots fan, and we each pick on the other's team with great relish :P He sees that fabric, and that'll be the end of that--I'll never live it down, having to sew a Giants-themed something or other :P

    OK, the helmet parts and grill are all applique on. Now comes the tricky part, designing the surrounding blocks. I'm waiting for my muse to wake up. I should have an idea by the end of the day.
