I had the pleasure of creating this wonderful quilt made from baseball jerseys and t-shirts. Hunter has been playing baseball all the way through high school – thankfully his parents kept all those t-shirts and jerseys! As you can see in the pictures below, I was able to use the jerseys – with the button down fronts. I sewed the shirt together then treated it as a t-shirt. This quilt is also special because a friend of mine, Shelley, embroidered three of Hunter’s motivational quotes, and I was able to include them in the quilt. Also, there are four pictures of Hunter playing ball. All in all, this is a wonderful quilt – and I know he’ll enjoy it as he plays baseball in college.

And, from the jerseys – one back and one front – I also made him a matching pillow.
