    I had also sewn around the edges of the numbers.. I tested it on a few scraps,, put it through I beleive 15 washings,, and it stayed,, and did not begin to fray or anything,,,

    Your quilt looks great the way it is. I take it this is your quilt?
    Is it a lap quilt or quilt for your bed? I light the bright cheery colors :thumbup:

    Love it-from a big Steelers fan. I've made a few that were auctioned at benefits but now I need to make one for me. Thanks for the picture and the suggestions.

    Very nice quilt. I am sure any fan would love it. My only suggestion would to do some quilting in the solid rows. Maybe you could do diamonds like on their helmet emblem.

    Your quilt is wonderful. Great idea on the diamond quilting, that would be stunning!

    Hello and welcome! I love the bright colors. The only thing I would have done differently, a little more quilting. I am not a sports fan but I am a big time quilting fan!
