    Just finished Memory Baseball T-shirt Quilt for Grandson

    This wasn't as hard as I feared...it did take some math skills to get a good balance on the spacing of everything...and thanks to helpful suggestions from some of you on this board...I think it came out nicely. I didn't do the quilting - a friend who has a Longarm did that for me. I can't wait until Dec. to give it to him for his birthday.

    The label was printed as photo on the photo fabric sheets...cut out a little larger and hand sewed it down. I use my computer to create it.

    Love your baseball quilt and LOVE your baseball label. I will have to keep this in mind for my 7yo DGS as he collects his team jerseys. Love the photo inserts, too.

    I'm guessing that you designed the layout, right??

    Hi Elaine,

    Just looked at your grandson's baseball T-shirt quilt. My daughter is saving Will's (he's 12) T-shirts and wants me to make one for him. I am so glad I got to see yours because it helps me to decide how I will design it. I like the way you put his pictures on there too. So you must be feeling a lot better to get that nice quilt done.

    Oh..Kitsy...that was made before my surgery...I worked hard to get it done...just in case the recovery was slow...the quilter had it until last week and I just got the binding on it and the label.

    Yes I did the layout design...that was the hard part! Best color arrangement, spacing...where to add pictures...lots to consider...I created a couple ideas...took pictures and then...when I still couldn't decide I posted them on here and asked for opinions. That was very helpful.
