Play Ball!!!

Last spring, four of our school district students (three in the middle school) lost everything to a house fire. We could here the sirens and trucks racing through town that afternoon and by the end of the school day, the email had been sent informing us of what had happened.

The boys are avid baseball fans - the Yankees are their team. With the help of friends donating fabric and my friend Beth quilting them, each of the boys now has their own Turning 20 Baseball Quilt. Their dad was very surprised. I told him that he had raised some very fine sons, and that they didn't ask for what happened to them. Besides...... everyone needs their own special blankie.
This is the first for four quilts. They are all basically the same, just the large baseball panel is in a different place in each quilt.

Looks like they washed up nicely. I'm soooo glad that the kids and their dad liked them :)
