    I'm working on a quilt for my son and he loves the Vikings so this is what I've come up with.

    this was the original layout but as I was sewing it I thought it looked to boxy

    so I changed the blocks around and I like this better but then I got to thinking it might be to bright for his taste so I made another change

    I put in the green fabric and rearranged the corner blocks so the green extends from the center instead of the white

    but in all fairness I did take this picture of the green boxy looking thing

    It's nice to have lots of options, but don't over think it. They are ALL very nice, and he will LOVE whichever one you choose.

    Thanks everyone, #3 was my choice as well. Now all I have to do is turn my 20" Viking head drawing into a Viking applique and hope I don't mess it up.

    I'm going to be a little different. As I scrolled from #1 to #2, I definitely liked #2 better. When I scrolled to #3, I thought I liked, but I kept going back and forth over 2 and 3 and finally decided I like the crispness of the white background around the Viking. Really makes it pop and I think that's what you want for the mascot. Just one opinion among many!

    So, #2 is my choice

    You are right as far as it popping, the white really does that. What I'm afraid is going to happen is once I turn the head into an applique, the horns from the helmet will blend into the back ground and not show up. I'm not that good at applique as I have only done it once or twice. It would be nice to do as embroidery but this is a 24" block and my machine only does a 9" x 6" which would get lost in a block this size.

    I'm not committed to anything yet on the center block (except for the Viking head), still throwing things around. Maybe I can come up with a way to incorporate both the green and the white. I will keep thinking this out.

    Is this supposed to be the Minnesota Vikings? Why are you doing it in Green Bay colors?
