Well…not really, because this quilt is a hockey quilt and I don’t think they use balls in hockey.

As you can probably tell, I’m not much of a hockey fan.  I do like baseball and football, but just can’t get into hockey.  However, I have family members who are fans and a nephew who never got his baby blanket from me.

My sister and I did some searching and found this pattern by Kristie at OCD: Obsessive Crafting Disorder and I got to work.

I wanted to personalize the borders and decided on some applique.  I will be putting my nephew’s name at the top and on the sides I decided the logo for their favorite team would be perfect.

I have this great circle cutter that I’m in love with. I used it to cut the black and white circles I needed for the logo.

Perfect!

The circles were cut larger than I needed and I used this method by Anna Maria Horner and machine appliqued them.

For the main part of the logo I used Wonder Under and cut out the main part.

Once the circles were machined appliqued on, I ironed the main part of the logo onto them and machine appliqued that on as well.

I attached the borders to the sides and they are looking great on the quilt!

Stay tuned for my next post to see the finished top!
