In Honor of Baseball

I've had a busy week and not in front of my design wall.  We have been entertaining friends and attending baseball games.  Our friends are from Cincinnati, so we enjoyed 3 games between the Cardinals and the Reds.  In keeping with the beginning of Baseball Season, I'm going to post a quilt I completed a few years ago for my son (I real baseball fan).
Since my son is older I didn't want the "little boy" baseball quilt look.  After much searching, I made the blocks from vintage baseball logo fabric I found on eBay.  The diamonds are appliqued on to the pinstripe block and then put together with star and a baseball novelty print.  The quilt was machine quilted with stars and a large meandering stitch.  This Christmas gift was a real surprise and one he really likes.   This was one of my first large quilts.  Check out the great quilts large and small that are over at Off the Wall Friday.  Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy a baseball game---Go Cardinals or your favorite team.  Happy Quilting!
