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.
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!
