The Pack 2011-2012 Season

To keep it a quilting post--- I have finished all twelve blocks on my Penny Garden BOW. I'm hoping to start borders-- of some kind-- this weekend.  Looking at this snap shot...the blocks my look good framed in half square triangles.....just thinking....

  I finished the last of the purple flowers and stems in the car on the Way to Green Bay....for the Season Opener of the NFL.  We went to see the The Packers play the Saints...It was nothing short of awesome.

We tailgated...Amazing how putting on team colors makes friends out of strangers....
Growing up in Louisiana and cheering the Saints-- through the lean years-- made the game great.  We texted back and forth with family back home....

Ok-- Be jealous for just a second-- we had box seats complete with drinks and buffet.....


Yes -- I'm a complete NFL junkie-- completely obnoxious I went to sleep watching Inside the NFL last night....

I got my husband tickets to see the Jets play at FedEx field. (Pay back for a quilt show or two...)

Love your blocks, Melanie. How nice to have those finished. I can see framing them with HSTs. Can't wait to see what you come up with :)

My husband has season tickets for the Giants -- I always liked football, but am quickly becoming a bit of a junkie myself!!! Love the excitement of being at a game!

Your quilt blocks are lovely -- can't wait to see the finished product!

Not much on the NFL around here . . . but we try to keep up on a name or two just so we can converse *s*
Love your blocks.

Ahhh what a great game to see! Lucky girl! We are football people here too and we live here in WI, so guess who our favorite is?

You are so funny! I hope your team has a great season (until they play the Steelers!). Your blocks are beautiful; this will be an exceptional quilt.

I have only been to one Packer game in my 35 years in GB. We sat in a box, too. That's the only way to go. Glad you were able to enjoy a great game.

Love your blocks.
