The fabric choices for this quilt were really fun but also challenging. There are a lot of sports fabrics out there but a lot of them do not suit my tastes in fabric and so many of them had all the sports thrown in one print (soccer, tennis, hockey, you name it). Jacob is mainly into football and baseball so we chose only those fabrics and believe me, we searched high and low to find just the perfect fabrics for this quilt. He is also a UGA and Falcons fan so we wanted some of those fabrics too. Since The Grandmomma is from Virginia she just had to throw in some of those teams and added a little Tennessee square in honor of my friend Sharon.
The sports themed boy quilt I have been working on for what seems like forever is finished. Not only is it finished, but it is delivered and on the bed of one sweet little boy, Jacob, who happens to be turning 7 on Friday. I hope he loves his quilt as much as I do!
I had a lot of help from my dear sweet mother-in-law, The Grandmomma, on this one. This quilt might still be sitting in a pile in my sewing room if it weren't for her. She finished up all the blocks for me and then put it on her long arm machine and quilted it, too. She did a fantastic job! Thanks Grandmomma. You are awesome!
