Team Spirit youth quilts

I owe this idea 100% to my friend & neighbor. She asked me if I could create a baby gift for a child whose house was divided- one parent a Steelers fan, the other a Patriots fan. Because quilts are my favorite thing, I had a vision for a checkerboard pattern blanket, using fabric from both teams. I placed the order for the fabric and couldn’t wait for it to arrive.

In the mean time, I was at Hobby Lobby (for what, I’m not even sure), and browsed through the fabrics. I saw they had Atlanta Falcons fabric, and got an idea. My best friend and her husband are Falcons season ticket holders. Their daughter was turning 1, and I needed a birthday gift. I bought the fabric along with red gingham and red flannel to back the blanket, went home and got straight to work.

Here are both blankets-

After these blankets were finished, I had the opportunity to create a LSU blanket for a friend’s little girl. Normally, I either purchase fabric from Jo Ann’s or Hobby Lobby, or I order from Fabric.com, but none of these had the purple LSU fabric that I wanted. I found it online, but (of course) had issues actually getting it. 2 weeks, 3 emails, and 2 separate shipments later… Here it is-

The small blanket measures 36″ by 42″, and sells for $30, the larger blanket is 42″ by 42, and is $40. These can be created for any college or professional sports team, and are a great way to show your team spirit, or a house divided! Check out my Facebook page for ordering information.
