I created this Atlanta Teams Sports Quilt for my son, who is an all ATL teams superfan. This quilt is made from jerseys and shirts from Atlanta Falcons (NFL), Atlanta United (MLS), Atlanta Hawks (NBA), and Atlanta Braves (MLB).
Established in 1965, the Atlanta Falcons‘ iconic black, red, and white color scheme mirrors the intensity and energy they bring to every game. The team’s logo, a fierce falcon in mid-flight, embodies the spirit of determination and drive that characterizes their play on the field. From the roaring crowd at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium to the fervent chants of “Rise Up,” the Falcons’ fan community is a force that echoes throughout Atlanta and beyond.
Founded in 2014, Atlanta United FC made its debut in Major League Soccer (MLS) in 2017 and quickly became a phenomenon both within the league and in the broader sports landscape. Atlanta United’s success can largely be attributed to its passionate and dedicated fanbase. The team’s matches are held at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, a state-of-the-art facility that can hold over 40,000 fans for soccer games. Supporter clubs like “Footie Mob“, “Terminus Legion” and “Resurgence,” have created an electrifying atmosphere that rivals some of the most renowned soccer stadiums around the world.
Originally established as the Buffalo Bisons in 1946, the Atlanta Hawks went through several name changes and relocations before settling in Atlanta in 1968. The Hawks’ move from St. Louis to Atlanta marked a significant moment for the city and the Southeastern United States, as they became the first NBA team in the region. Hawks fans, known as the “Sixth Man,” play an essential role in creating a spirited atmosphere at games. Their unwavering support and passion contribute to the energy and excitement surrounding the team.
Founded in 1871 as the Boston Red Stockings, the Atlanta Braves underwent several name changes before becoming the Boston Braves in 1912. The team’s move to Milwaukee in 1953 as the Milwaukee Braves marked a new era, and the following years would see the emergence of legendary players like Hank Aaron, who would later become one of the most revered figures in baseball history. In 1966, the Braves made a historic move to Atlanta, becoming the city’s first major professional sports team. The relocation brought baseball to the South and ignited a passionate fan base that has supported the team through both triumphs and challenges.
