1. Football Team Quilts

    Once again school has started and so have preseason football games. Now is the time to order a team quilt for your favorite sports fan.

    As hot as it’s been, it’s hard to believe that it’s time to head back to school. And that means it’s time for football games. My favorite high school memories were going to football games and rooting for my team. I loved the smell of fall in the air, but it often got pretty chilly up in the stands at night.
