    Football Quilt for Grandson

    I designed this quilt is for my grandson who is 8. This is a Christmas gift.
    The shoe and football I made of vinyl. I called the high school in his home town and they sent me a Varsity letter.
    The pattern I used was by Thankfully Sew, called Game Day, by Terry Griffin. My husband enlarged the shirt. The football field I found at a fabric shop and then added borders to make it larger. I really enjoyed working on this quilt. It took me approx. a week to do.

    This quilt is wonderful! When I give a quilt as a gift I really want it to speak to the heart of the recipient. Sometimes it is a stretch for me to come up with ideas especially if they are “into” things that I’m not so much into. Your quilt speaks so well of your love for your grandson . . . . really an inspiration to me today. Thank you!
    Blessings,
    Happy Camper
