Sochi-Inspired Diamond Quilted Flag Printables


Inspired by the patchwork quilt design of the Sochi Olympics, I put together some flags for our decorations. I started out with Russia, Australia & U.S. And then went on to countries of ethnic origin for us and some of the friends we know. Unfortunately, I didn’t really consider that I should check whether all the countries have teams representing at Sochi. So even though there won’t be any South Africans to cheer for, you can still wave their banner. (Oops.)

I realize I’ve neglected a lot of the likely medal winners, so if you have any requests, I still have all my diamonds saved off.

Edited to add Poland, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Korea, by request. (Poland also doubles as an upside-down Indonesian flag!)

Sochi Party Planning

It’s almost time for another theme night for the Olympics opening ceremony. I’ve started an inspiration board.

I don’t know if I’ll do invitations yet, but a Russian Passport with an Opening Ceremony Ticket tucked inside would be cute, right?

I’ve been looking at the font on the ticket. It has a very distinct ‘K’, and using identifont there is a similar ‘K’ with the font Signika, but not a lot else matches. A closer look at the Sochi site web code, and it looks like they are using a specially created font called, of all things, Sochi2014 in bold, medium, and light… along with a font family called Etelka.

Need to start thinking about food, and we’ll obviously need to have White Russians
