  •  You probably wonder why I've titled this post football and I'm showing a quilt.  One of our three football playing grandsons made this.  It's probably his 3rd or 4th quilt.  The rail fence blocks were a big step up from what he's done before, but he tackled it. (sorry for the pun)  Each year that he has made a quilt for 4-H for our county fair, we make a special trip to a quilt shop about 40 minutes east of us.  We always take along a pattern, a fairly simple star, and plan to look for fabric.  Plan (that's my idea - evidently not his).  Each time we've done this, he's spotted another quilt - in this case - this one, that he wants to make.  As you know, it's much more fun to make a quilt that you like rather than one that you don't. (even if Grandma does like it)  So we buy the fabric and go out for lunch at some gourmet restaurant like Arbys.  He's good at football (7th grade) but he also a good quilter as he got a Grand Champion at the fair!  
  •   He's already plotting his quilt for next year and I have a feeling it won't be a simple star pattern.
