    Ok guy's, Gabe told me he wants me to make him a NY Giants quilt for Christmas so been my youngest and last child I have to spoil him and of course he just got his first report card and he has A & B so he deserves it.
    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

    My oldest DD is a HUGE NYG fan. She lives in her NYG sweatshirt and would love a quilt like this. Can't wait to see pictures. Thanks for sharing.

    Sounds great Craftybug. Or, if you didn't' want to do that much applique, you could fussy cut squares of the football, helmets, etc and add red/white or blue borders to get to the size of square you want, then sew it all together.
    (But then, I don't have a clue how to applique) I know that anything you do will be great and your DS will love it. Congrats to him on A's & B's. Tell him to keep up the good work!

    Craftybug I like the fabric very much. I think your idea is great but I also like LoriJ's suggestion on the fussy cutting with borders. Please whatever you decide post the pictures when you are done. :D
