All American

Ugh. It is so hard to show quilting details in pictures! Especially when I use lots of prints and same-color thread. Oh well...at least I tried???

This is the first quilt I actually got paid for! It's a sample my mom made for her shop, pretty simple blocks, but she used the fun baseball and hot dog prints. I quilted diamonds in the squares, meandered around the hot dogs, and sewed baseball words in the yellow parts, words like strike, run, out, pitch, catch, etc. Since the blocks were small, I had to keep the words short, LOL. My original list had things like umpire, outfield, fly ball, etc. Ain't gonna happen in 3 inches!
