'lil Patriots & 'lil Steelers

In honor of the 2017 AFC Championship game between the New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers. I made a 'lil Steelers quilt.

I had this t-shirt left-over from another project and once I knew the teams would be playing each other, what better use than a team quilt.

You know I love stripes. So I did them yet again. Light grey and white. All over-stippled quilt patten and finished with a black and white striped binding, and of course NFL licensed fabric for the back.

So what's YOUR predication? Who do you think will win and go on to play in this years Super Bowl?

Of course I am a New England girl, so I am screaming all the way for my Patriots !

[only 7]

2016 was not the best year in terms of quilting.

I only made 7 quilts.

2 were custom orders :

One was made for my easy shop.

Two were made for my own family.

One was a donation, for a local child receiving cancer treatment.

...and one was a gift that never made it. It was mailed but probably stolen from the USPS.

I don't have any great quilting plans for 2017. I would like to make another New England Patriots quilt, maybe a postage stamp quilt. A few more to round out my non-functioning easy shop, and I would really, really like to get a pile going to donate to the Children's hospital, as I have done in years past.
