    Since trugger referred to a "circles" pattern a few days ago, I thought I would try to get the nerve to post one or two that I made a couple years ago. It is also Raw Edge Applique' and I have used the 'Heat n Bond Lite. The only "quilting" that was done was a straight stitch around the large circles after it was sandwiched. All of the circles were initially edge-stitched with either a zig-zag or a buttonhole stitch onto the base square. They certainly aren't fancy-schmancy either, but the mom's were happy so then I was too! The pattern came from Quilter's Schoolhouse in August, possibly of 2002, so it's an oldie.

    On the first one, Jackson's blanket, the baby shower was held at Christmas time and I really didn't have time to work with it very much, the baby wasn't due until April I think. So I grabbed a handful of fat quarters of a particular "family" of fabrics on display at my LQS. I cut and pinned a few squares and wrapped them up with a note saying " . . this is what I have in mind". The mommy liked it so much, she went to the same LQS and bought several yards of one of the fabrics to make covers for the seat and back of her rocking chair in his room. For Paxton's Baseball field, the mommy had indicated that the baby's room would be all baseball themed, with reds and blues as dominant color. Once I got started I really did get crazy. I found most of the baseball fabrics online. And then my DH started suggesting the various field positions. We ended up making a Game out of it at the baby shower. And BTW these two mommies are sisters.

    How fun those two are! You did a wonderful job. My family is wild into sports so the second one is truly my favorite.

    So now I have to ask you if you allfound the lay-out of the baseball field??? There is a Pitcher's Mound(sand with a diamond pad on it), 1st, 2nd and 3rd base, Home Plate, Catcher behind Home Plate, 2 Batters warming up on each team, Team Colors/Shirts and the Score, the Bat Boys behind home plate, and the Trophy that the winning team received! There is also the Outfield (grass)and the pictures/advertising on the back wall behind the outfield. I had so much fun making this one, I threatened the mommy that I couldn't give it up! When her husband saw it he said it could not be spit on or pooped on, and that it ONLY could be hung on the wall, with the other baseball theme things they had, so I was glad he was also happy with it! :)
