Take Me Out to the Ball Game

take me out to the ball game pinwheel quilt

Take Me Out to the Ball Game
June 2014

This is the pinwheel pattern. For the red pinwheels, I used a fabric that has baseballs on it, and the blue pinwheels are red and blue stars on a white background. Both these fabrics were new acquisitions, while the solid red, white and blues were all leftover pieces of past project fabrics from Mom, Granny and Edith.

As I am making a quilt, I will try to come up with a name for it. This one felt so much like baseball and Americana – with the baseball fabric along with the red, white and blue colors –  it seemed fitting to name it, Take Me Out to the Ball Game, in honor of the famous old-time baseball song.

I donated this quilt to the County of Ventura, Children & Family Services, in July 2014.

This year seems to be flying by! My Love Hugs quilt project has taken a back seat to some of life’s more important events, like welcoming a new grandson and a new son-in-law into the family.

I made this quilt for my new grandson, Felix. The animal fabric is one that was from Granny’s leftover fabrics. I combined it with some fabrics that I had from other sewing projects I had done in past.
