As a lifelong Dallas Cowboys fan, a blue and silver quilt seemed most appropriate.
I used the Peppermint Pinwheels pattern but changed the centers. Instead of rectangles I used some five-pointed stars. This site about Betsy Ross has directions for cutting perfect stars. But I chose to make mine slightly off-kilter. It's more congruent with the free-hand cutting of the pinwheels.
I'm telling the recipient these represent fireworks after a Cowboys victory. Hopefully he will wrap up in it every day.
