And the Saints Go Marching In.....

Finish #26 ... You would think I was a football fan -- NOT! I like the Football Pools, but then I have to wait until the next morning to find out if I won. This quilt is for a special guy who is retiring next week -- hope he will have many "Saintly" football games ahead this season.


I hope you can see the Footballs quilted -- The Quilting Niche' did a great job, thank you Janel.



A special shoutout to "PhylRob" --- she was the Winner of Debbie's Layer Cake Giveaway. Talk about a SMALL world. I ran by the quilt shop this afternoon to pick up the Saints Quilt. Debbie had comments from all over the world and who wins, a quilter from a nearby town...and there she was, visiting the shop to pick out her special layer cake. It was so exciting to meet the winner in person!
For more Sew and Tell -- take a cyber ride to Amy Lou Who for inspiration.

This is beautiful. Love the colors. I'm not a football fan, so I didn't even think it was related, until I saw the back!

Wow, Jamie! I never fail to be impressed by your quilty successes! This one is cool with the pinwheels and 4 patches. It is sure to be loved by your recipient- those footballs in the quilting are neat!

When I glanced at your quilt I thought...now there's a nice "manly" quilt. Then you showed the backing! I was right! It is for a man!
