Sandy’s grandson loves baseball. In fact, he plays baseball for St. Xavier Catholic High School here in Louisville. When it was time for Sandy to make a quilt for her grandson, there was only one theme which would be perfect – baseball!
This quilt is large at 100″ by 100″. It includes printed fabrics, all of which have a baseball theme, and woven plaids. There is also the white background fabric, giving us lots of negative space to dream about. Sandy and I agreed, though, that keeping the quilting simple and gender-neutral would be important.
The solution? One of my favorite gender-neutral edge-to-edge designs, Pinched Square Spirals, quilted in a white thread. This design makes a really neat secondary design. Better yet, the main quilting design reminds me of the diamond shape of the baseball field.
I think it’s a home run!
