Sparty On

I wanted to make a Sparty quilt for our camper. 
 I thought it would be so cool to have one for fall camping when we are watching the games. 
 I had a vision of making a patchwork background with a giant Sparty head on the top of it. 
That's where it stalled out.  
I needed a giant Spartan helmet.  
My friend, Carol, supplied the pattern for one she traced off her flag/banner. 
PERFECT.  

I set to work making my patchwork blocks while we were camping this year
 then put the helmet on later. 

 I gave it to my friend Liz, to quilt for me.  
I found an amazing quilting pattern that said 
"Sparty On" and on the O was the crest of the Spartan helmet! 
I wanted the helmet outlined though and guess what?  
She did that for me too!!!

I am so very happy with how it turned out. 
 I backed it in Spartan flannel that has a dark gray background and it is perfect!


Look at that helmet quilting!  Amazing!!!


You can see the Sparty On quilting in this one.


I can't wait to use this quilt in the fall.  
Just another way to add to the Spartan theme we have going in our camper! 
 My SIL had an amazing floor mat for outside that she gifted me that looks a lot like this quilt, 
without the patchwork, that we put out when we camp (when it's allowed).

Have a great weekend everyone! 
 I will be finishing putting away the last of my Christmas decorations and cleaning the house.  
Woo hoo!!
