Look What Happened

 I know the Super Bowl is 
now history,
but the story of 
deflated footballs is still
high on the 
news media's agenda.
All of this hoopla has caused
a trickle down effect.

I have deflated footballs.

 They were suppose to be touching,
but I couldn't get any of them to do it.
The mistake has to be in my tracing. 
No wait,
I never touched those templates.

So in order to preserve
my applique prowess,
the only thing to do
is to create a cover up.

 no one will ever know
what happened.

PS  This is no way a reflection
on real life football.

 Until Next Time-


  1. Your creative writing is very cute today.

  2. good solution. It looks like the person who drafted the pattern forgot the 1/4 inch that they all would have to have in order to meet when finished.
    Thats frustrating

  3. Very clever, and a good solution to the problem.

  4. I don’t think it was you. They don’t touch on Di’s quilt either.

  5. Haha!!!!! You are just perfectly on today!!!!!

  6. Well Kyle - here in Packerland - where we are still stinging from that loss to Seattle, my footballs don't meet point to point either - Love your solution!! Very clever!! I might just leave mine as is and indicate on the back label that the quilt was made during the era of "deflategate"
    Your post is a delight as always!

  7. Had a good laugh with this post--very clever.
    Your "coverup" is very effective. No one will ever suspect the truth! : )

  8. What a great solution! Your post made me smile :0)

  9. Perfect ! They look like they belong there ;-)

  10. Too funny.:) What a perfect cover up!

  11. Isn't it great when a cover up doesn't just cover but adds an extra sparkle as well.

  12. Perfect solution to your problem. More work; but really looks great.

  13. The border looks all the better for the addition of the circles...but they are so incredibly tiny, how did you manage them!

  14. I don't think it would have been a problem if you'd left them as they were - since they were so evenly spaced it looked like they were supposed to be that way - but your solution adds a great new element to the design. Good job!

  15. Very well done Kyle - and I won't let on...!
