This weekend I have that rarest of all finishes: a personal quilt that has nothing to do with Covered in Love. Yes, it does occasionally happen. This quilt was made for a guy friend based on his favorite baseball team.
I couldn't care less about baseball but as we all know, quilters make quilts for other people, and that means we make all kinds of quilts. I decided on a simple quadrant design with appliqued logo and baseball stitching, all from super cozy flannel.
For the logo I traced an image and layered it over red and white fabrics and batting. Then I stitched through all the layers, perforated off the paper, and trimmed away the excess white.
The baseball stitches were made with bias folded strips and put on after the quilting was done. Since the top is flannel, the backing is fleece, and I did use batting this quilt turned out super cozy and warm. It's now resting in its new home on the couch at my friend's house!
Covered in Love
is a 501(c)(3) charity that donates quilts to patients dying in the
hospital, over 400 so far! The Jan/Feb drive is going on now. Check
