    I finally decided what colors the blocks will be. Not my first choice but it's the only purple fabric I can get my hands on now that even looks close.

    The only block from the first batch that I'm using is the first one.

    I will not post any more pictures until I get it done.

    I'd love to know too. I went to Northeast High School in KC, MO, and our colors were purple and gold and we were the mighty Vikings.

    I hand drew the Viking head to the size I needed, then I traced each section backwards on freezer paper and ironed them onto the fabric.

    Once I rough cut the pieces out of fabric, I removed the freezer paper and applied Wonder Under onto the fabrics with the freezer paper on top of the Wander Under. Then I cut accurate pieces of the fabric out.

    Remove the freezer paper and the paper on the Wander Under and place the parts onto the background fabric and iron in place.
    Then each piece was stitched down with satin stitching, I stared on the face features & hair lines first and then worked around all the main parts. Hope that helps.

    If you have a picture of the Viking head then you could go to a copier store and have them enlarge it for you. I don't have one close to me so I had to draw it by hand. It took a few tries but I finally got it.
