My Angel of Light Quilt...Hockey Style

For inspiration I used this quilt and this diagram for my partial hockey rink. I decided on a partial rink as the Angel Quilt is only 15 x 15.

I dug into my scraps for the red line, blue line, face off circles and goalie net.

That makes me HAPPY!  The ice is a white snowflake fabric - from the stash! I was going to make DD's coach a signature quilt but the decided against it.

The quilting was a little trickier.  DD suggested that I venture into the rink after her practice and look at the ice. I suppose the patterns in the ice are the results of the drills each day. So that there is *no right or wrong* skating pattern.

I used this tutorial for the color coordinating binding.

I also added a girl hockey player for the Angel to guide and watch over.

I was #9 on the July Goal Setting Linky Party.

Today I am linking up with

Love the angel.
