Are You Ready for Some Football?

are you ready for some football

Are you ready for some football? If you love football as much as I do, you ARE ready!  A chill in the air (unless you live in Florida!), cheerleaders, drill teams and school bands…and NFL Fantasy Football!  I love it all – getting together with friends to watch the games, nibbling on delicious snacks, and maybe sipping on a frosty beverage.  There’s just nothing like it!

I’ve pinned a bunch of yummy appetizers, drink recipes, and games on my Football Ready Pinterest board.  Check it out!

IF you’re looking for a great way to show your team spirit year round, create a quilt to keep you warm and decorate your space.  The right quilt makes a colorful graphic addition to any room.  Throw it on the bed or hang it on the wall!

We have four sports themed quilt designs available at Janice Holden Designs:  Team Spirit, School Spirit, Go Team, and Cheer Squad

Team Spirit

are you ready for some footballTeam Spirit was designed as a Christmas gift for a young Oregon Ducks fan.  It’s a fun, flexible quilt design. It’s modern and bright, works for guys and girls, and it’s a lot of fun to make! Customize it for your school, team, or sport.  The instruction book is easy to follow, and practically guarantees success!

Customize the football helmet with your favorite athlete or fan’s name and team colors.  You might even add their jersey number or graduation year! A Team Spirit quilt makes a wonderful gift for birthdays and graduations.  College kids love it as dorm room decor too!

Approximate size: 55 3/4″ x 75 1/2″

School Spirit

Cheer Squad
