Sunday Quilt Inspiration: Super Bowl

I am playing with the football theme.

Because I'm not much of a football fan (really, not at all) I mostly just hang out in the studio and come in when someone calls me for a big play, half-time, or a food problem.

Here are ten of our favorite tasty tailgating snacks!

I had no idea that people go to such extremes for Super Bowl parties.  At our house there are meatballs and sausage, chips and dip, crackers, a variety of sweets and colas.  The kids come by to yell at the TV and tease each other.

These are seriously the BEST little sandwiches! I have made them several time and would love to make them again for the party. They are delicious and great little finger food items. :)

These party food pics are from Pinterest, because the truth is we're pretty low key and rather sad in comparison.  But whatever.  We're happy.

Giving Back With Quilting: Quilts of Valor Foundation and Kimmy Brunner

Inscribed over the chapel doors at the United States Naval Academy, Non sibi sed patriae-Not for self but for country-is a simple but powerful statement. This quilt, Non Sibi Sed Patriae, was made by Tony Jacobson in honor of Seaman First Class Vernon C. Gaworski, who served on the U.S.S. Aaron Ward.

An antique quilt was the inspiration for this quilt by Marianne Fons. Our instructions will help you get underway making your own Quilt of Valor. Watch Marianne make these blocks in "Love of Quilting" episode 2413 on PBS. #LoveofQuilting #QuiltsofValor #patriotic #quilt #quiltblock #FonsandPorter

I sat through a whole Superbowl Sunday once, many years ago, when I lived briefly in the US, but frankly had no clue what was going on!
