    I was asked about my Avator so. It is a modification of a pattern by Glendora's Girl "Center Ice."

    I put on some machine embroidery and also purchased various crests related to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

    The borders are hard to see but they are black, black with gold, and black (Penguins colours). I also changed the player to match the Penguins uniform.

    I put some hockey player fabric on the back. A lot of people I have shown the quilt to think that it could be reversible. I am not sure.

    Any way that's its history.

    Love your quilt being that I live in Penguin territory. Are you a Penguins fan or did you make it for someone. I know many who love to have that quilt.

    Very awesome designing and creation! I would have liked it even better if it was red and white (go Wings!) LOL - just kidding. You really did a wonderful job.

    I know the year the Pens won the Cup I was at Game 3 of the final after Detroit had won the first two and I didn't think we had a prayer...guess i should realize there is always hope....and i am trying real hard not to lose it this year :-o

    btw Detroit will be out in the first round this year 8-)

    thanks; i won't take credit for the quilting...i send it out. I tried a couple and got frustrated on my domestic machine (and I don't like anything that has the word "hand") ). So now I only do quilting on on lap or small quilts.

    Can you please tell me where I can purchase the pattern. I have a nephew that loves hockey and co-incidentally lives near pittsburgh. As his graduation gift I am giving him a quilt and this is what I'd like to make for him. I am just having a hard time locating this pattern.

    Love your quilt, I am interested in buying the pattern but having a problem finding it. Can you help me locate a shop or someone who carries it?
    Thanks

    I remember seeing this quilt when you posted it a long time ago. It inspired me to buy that pattern and adjust it for the LA Kings for my dear son-in-law. He, my daughter and grands are all are die-hard Kings fans and he was blown away when he got it. Thanks for inspiring and sharing!
    The bad news is - time flies.
    The good news is - you're the pilot!

    You got that right... Go WINGS! LOL! Can you tell I'm only slightly less obsessed with Red Wings hockey than I am with quilting & dogs? LOL! But, I have mucho respect for Sid the Kid & I LOVE your quilt! I've always wanted a hockey quilt but I'm not nearly talented enough to make something as neat as your avatar...

    I watched a special about Sid & was so impressed with him as a person (along with his considerable talent on the ice)... such a great young man with such a big heart!
