I realized earlier this week, that quilting and football have a lot in common. I was reading up on football and came upon these terms that made me immediately think about quilting:
NEUTRAL ZONE – The area of the field between the offense and defense when both are lined up read for the snap of the ball. ♥ The “neutral zone” of my quilts is the area of neutral fabric between 2 focal fabrics, such as sashing.
BIG UGLIES – Offensive linemen. ♥ I have some “big uglies” pieces of fabric that I’ve had to ask myself, “what were you thinking?” Do you have any “big uglies”?
CLIP/CLIPPING – A penalty where an offensive player blocks a defensive player in the back. Results in a 15 yard penalty. ♥ Clipping threads, clipping corners, clipping curves. It seems I do a lot of clipping in my quilting. No penalties in my sewing room for clipping!
HAIL MARY – A passing play where the offense is usually more than 40 yards away from the end zone. Receivers will run into one area of the end zone and the quarterback will just throw it up for them and pray one catches it. ♥ Once I sew my patches of fabric together and take it to the iron, I “hail mary” that my seams line up.
SEAM – A route where a receiver runs downfield for 8-10 yards, and then angles in towards the center. ♥ My “seams” are the route downfield of my fabric patches that hopefully continue straight downfield and never angle towards the center.
THREW IT AWAY – When a quarterback legally throws an incomplete pass with the sole intention of ending the play and avoiding a sack. ♥ See above – if my “seam” angles towards the center of my fabric patch, I’ll have to “throw it away”.
TUCK RULE – An incomplete pass where the football comes out of the quarterback’s hand as his arm is moving forward in a passing motion. ♥ My “rule on tucks” is to always avoid them, but when they do happen, then I have to “throw it away”. Maybe I should try a “hail mary”!
Now that we know so much about football, I hope you enjoy the big game! Be sure to check out our Super Bolt savings during a break! Hurry! Sale ends Monday February 8th, 2016.
