I Miss Football…

This is the time of year that I miss watching my team play football every week. If my favorite team does not make the playoffs, January is a very gloomy time of year.

I designed this paper pieced pillowcase for my favorite team, the Green Bay Packers. But, since I love football in general, I didn’t want to omit other fans favorite teams. I went on to design these pillowcase patterns so other fans could have fun paper piecing, too.

Minnesota Vikings will be the only team from the Central Division to advance to the playoffs…





Here are the other teams from my division for whom I have developed patterns; Detroit Lions and the Chicago Bears. But, I have had requests from these fans as well.



Dallas Cowboys, San Francisco 49ers, and the Seattle Seahawks.

I’ve been considering working up pillowcase patterns for this years top teams, but I am limited to a 6 letter per line format. This means that I can only fit 6 letters or spaces per line and am limited to 2 lines. Help me out with names for these teams…

New Orleans Saints: SAINTS WIN!

Atlanta Falcons: DIRTY BIRDS (but is this complimentary??? Please advise me, Falcon fans.)

New England Patriots: GO PATS

Los Angeles Rams: LOVE RAMS

Philadelphia Eagles:  EAGLES SOAR

Carolina Panthers:  GO CATS (not in love with this…but do you have anything better???)

If I have omitted your team, and you have a clever idea for their name, please share!

  1. Love your idea! They will be really fun pillowcases to make. I know what you mean about missing something when your team isn’t in it – I miss baseball when it is out of season and if the Red Sox aren’t in, seem to rapidly loose interest. Good luck with the patterns – I am so I will be making a Pats one!

  2. The Broncos sucked this year too, but I am thrilled there are so many new teams in the playoffs. I just hope the Patriots don’t win again. I love your pillow cases and just finished a Bronco quilt myself–it is on my blog if you want to see!

  3. Hi Mary,
    We’re just not used to not being in the Playoffs, are we?!! Waaaaa! I hate football season ending so soon for our Packers. I’ll cheer on the Vikings unwillingly because I want our division to advance while we sit back and hope that #12 is ready and better in 2018. ~smile~ Roseanne
