Game Day Quilt

For my next quilt I want to do a quilt that I can take to my son's football games this fall.

I have the hardest time trying to make a decision.
The school colors are red and black.

Help me out ...which should I do?

#1 This one and replace the monogram with the school monogram?

#2 and replace the name with the School Name and the flowers and a football helmet or school mascot appliqué.

#3 a rag quilt

#4 a standard 9 patch - use red and white squares with a cute black border and binding

Flag Quilt

The Inspiration

I decided to go with 16 inch squares and the actual flags were 15 X 12.5
All my flags were going to be American flags and not a mix.
She is finally finished.

NO more Ants

The ants were invading my hummingbird feeder!

So I did a little research and found that I needed to add an ant moat.  The ants crawl up the pole but can't get to the feeder because there trapped by the water!  GENIUS.

A little craftiness and a hot glue gun does the trick.

Use an aerosol can lid.  Drill a little hole and take some wire or a coat hanger.  Use the hot glue to attach the wire and close up the hole so the water does not drip out.

Now the hummingbirds don't have to share with the ants only the bees.
