Months and months ago a friend asked if I would mind making a quilt for a raffle she was putting together for her son's baseball team. They were raising money for a tip to Cooperstown. I agreed and figured I would just make whatever I felt like when the time came. Then she asked that it be baseball themed....hmm.
I decided that I would use some baseball fabric mixed with other non-baseball prints so that it would be baseball without being too baseball - makes sense right? I found a baseball print at Joann's as the focal point and then picked some coordinating blues and reds from my LQS.
The Big Star Quilt
tutorial from Missouri Star came through again. I cannot
recommend it enough! This is my second time making a quilt from it and
my mom is on her second quilt from it as well. It whips up SO fast. In
the video she uses 10" squares. I used 8" squares which I trimmed into
5" half-square triangles. Each star block is 18.5" unfinished.
A little bit of loopy quilting and a striped binding (love!) and it was off to the raffle where my friend's mom won it!
