    Tennis Quilt

    This is a tennis quilt I made for a granddaughter's graduation last spring. It was fun to make.

    The pattern is from Spring Creek NeedleArt in Richardson, TX
    I used felted wool for the tennis balls.

    I agree that it is very creative, you might have called it "tennis anyone?" Very cool well done.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
