super bowl sew in

I'm not at all into sports and my husband isn't either.
BUT we do want our kids to at least KNOW about football and the superbowl.
I have planned a hexie- super bowl sew in, but the TV will still be on and we'll make home made pizza like we did last year.
 
Here's a few pics of the hexies I've made so far
 
It's hard to tell how big they are on the design wall, but they are 3" on each side.
Now I just have these 2 designs so far, but tomorrow I should get more CLUB sets (I'm getting 2)
I don't know WHAT I'll make with these....
any ideas?
I've seen pillows, bags, hexies turned into squares, hexies appliqued onto blocks.

 
Here's a fun blue one.
I should mention again that the fabrics are SCRAPS from a Riley Blake quilt for Mccall's I'm finishing up- will also hand sew the binding on it tonight!

 
Here's 2 more
 
 
AND I didn't show these- I forgot them in the kitchen....
but Michele sent me this pattern- out of the blue! she thought it had my name written all over it with all the owls.... it's SO cute, I do plan on doing SOMETHING with it- one day.
THANKS Michele!!


 
Here's some funnies again from facebook and other places.
 
 
I LOVE this one- as I'm only 5ft tall. I said TALL not short :-)

 
isn't this one CLEVER!!??



 
OOPS! forgot about Sonja, here she is... still snot nosed, but no fever!

Beautiful hexies! I made that owl quilt for my first grand daughter. It's so cute!

Beautiful hexies. Any chance you'd share a tutorial on this, or any advice? I'd love to learn to make them. Yours are beautiful.

I also love the Hoots Owl quilt design and have it on my wish list to make. So cute.

Sounds like you had a wonderful day and found a great way to spend time on Superbowl Sunday.

Lots of fun for you and you are so welcome. Me? I've got a nasty cold and got nothing accomplished yesterday. Oh well. There will always be another day.
