Amberlea’s Softball T-Shirt Quilt!

Share

Mr. Alton Snellgrove asked me to make a quilt for his granddaughter out of her softball T-shirts and jerseys and I was happy to be able to. Amberlea has had quite a distinguished softball career already as her T-shirts attest! I bordered the shirts with red and blue, sashed the blocks with our white tone on tone stars print, framed it in concentric strips of red and blue then made the binding from the same white stars print. The batting inside is premium Hobbs Heirloom and the quilt is backed with Quilters Blenders Poinsettia Red 108” quilt backing from our shop. I quilted it in Bats, Balls, Gloves & Helmets using lime green thread.
Congratulations, Amberlea on your athletic achievements, I hope this quilt preserves and showcases your softball career to date throughout the years to come. 🙂

I made this Red, White and Blue quilt for Tim McDonald as a tribute to his military service. I quilted it in the “Star Spangled” design with navy blue thread. It is backed and bound with our Poinsettia Red Quilters Blenders quilt backing and filled with soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting. Thank you for your service!

Brenda Nelson’s mother-in-law made the center of this quilt. Brenda brought it in and asked us to finish and quilt it for her. My sister, Iris and I added the stripes, lighthouse plus more red and blue to it. I quilted it all in Diamonds with variegated red, white and blue thread and did the matching binding in red. An American treasure!
