I started this quilt two weeks ago and finished it up this morning. I think that's a record for me! I started it when I realized that the Project Linus Make-A-Blanket-Day was coming up FAST and the deadline to get Boo-Boo Kids quilts in was this Saturday!! I had already signed up to do it again this year and wasn't about to shirk my duties. So I whipped up this Play Ball quilt. The green border (grass print) was the challenge fabric and the theme was Team Linus. I HATE sports, so this is as close as I'm getting to making a sports quilt. I call it "Backyard Ball at Twilight". It's supposed to be reminiscent of playing ball outside on a warm summer evening, it's just starting to get dark (there are lots of stars and moon fabrics used), mom is calling you in from the back door.
