    Grandson's quilt

    I had to resize these photos in order to upload. I hope they show up ok. My grandson is going to Syracuse in the fall and has played baseball all through high school, so I made him this reversible quilt. The trick to the whole thing was in the quilting because whatever design worked on one side didn't work on the other. So I quilted each side to a piece of Warm and Natural and then put the two sides together, so it has double layers of batting, which I figured would be welcomed on a cold night! The quilt has many flaws, but I hope it is non-traditional enough that he'll like it. The big S is machine appliqued. The baseball side is a panel with 4 different border fabrics.

    So once you had two quilted parts, how did you put them together so they don't come apart in the middle? I love the idea of a reversible quilt. You did a great job. What a lucky grandson.

    It was from College Fabric Store online. I see one of the choices is sold out but the other is still there. But if you Google Syracuse fabric, a couple of other choices also come up.
