I decided, if I were going to continue in making quilts, I would just have to add a Topic category for them.
This is the 4th grandkid quilt and the 5th total, since I made the wall hanging for myself. This one is for a 6-year-old who is a big fan of the Nebraska Cornhuskers. I used the team colors plus 4 fabrics depicting the balls of his favorite team sports: Baseball, Football, Basketball, and Soccer. Then I made an almost lifesize ball for each of these sports in padded fabric, applique and embroidery then appliqued them to the quilt. The center N is not as padded but still has some loft to it.
Here are the balls, up close
Then the borders were all stitched with words pertaining to that particular sport:
The red corners are stitched with stars and the red borders have general sports and Husker words like 'team' 'coaches' 'red shirts' and nebraska cornhuskers'.
I think this, like the others will be a big hit.
