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. 🙂

My sister, Iris Tye Melvin helped Lindsie Eubanks make this quilt from her softball T-shirts and jerseys. It’s a really good way to preserve the memories from that special time in your life! It’s filled with Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting and backed with our Tone on Tone White Circles 108” quilt backing. I quilted it in bats, balls, gloves and batting helmets. It looks great with these colors!
