A girl I work with came up to me and asked if I was interested in a project. Her son is now 23 and his days of playing in organized sports is over but he has all these jerseys left and instead of throwing them out, she has been saving them. I have quilted before but nothing like this, so when she asked me, with my "I can do anything I set my mind to" attitude, I told her I would.

It's a old quilt block pattern that I redesigned. It was great for using up some small pieces of scrap. How many different fabrics? I'm not sure but I can tell you there's over 50, might be closer to 100. Some dating back at least 40 years, some brand new...and don't tell anybody but there's a few sheets and shirts in there too, it'll
