Have A Ball Quilt Top – May OMG Get ‘er Done

We set our May One Monthly Goal (OMG) to complete the quilt Have A Ball quilt for Colt. It was only fitting since our April goal was to get it to the quilt top stage. Since we were successful with that, let’s keep the roll going so to speak. We’ll share this goal at Patty’s linky party on Elm Street Quilts.

Have A Ball Inspiration

Originally, we found inspiration on Pinterest for the quilt. With just a few modifications it would be perfect for our great-nephew, Colt.

Our quilt has five featured sports balls, and we decided that six blocks of each, for a total of 30 appliqué blocks, would work. We looked to the Fat Quarter Shop for the fabrics. and found just what we needed.

Have A Ball Layout

Once we had a five-by-six layout that worked, I snapped a picture. Of course, we immediately made a swap as the concentration of baseballs in the left corner was too intense.

After the completed quilt top was shared we layered it and got it ready for the quilting process.

Our backing fabric choice is just PERFECT for Colt! His buddy, Zeus the black lab, is always ready for anything. Especially a lick to his face – you never know what food is lurking there!

Once again, thank you to Patty at Elm Street Quilts for last month’s linky party which helped move this project to the quilt top stage! This month, our goal is to get this quilt finished – quilted and binding added. Maybe even a photo of it on his bed, with any luck!
