Hey Merry Christmas from the North Pole League. The start of this quilt was made by enlarging one of the baseball card appliques from a quilt pattern we did in 2003 (baseball at the north pole theme). With this one, I kept adding strips around the card, trying to use up leftover Christmas fabrics. I thought it would be fun to try delectable mountain blocks for the final border and was lucky enough to have enough fabrics. It Was fun and the blocks are really easy to make using half square triangles.
After adding all the strips and borders, this quilt is somewhere around queen size. The baseball card center is about 48" tall enlarged from a 5" x 7" original. Whoops... forgot to measure the baseball bats and ball. This one's a gift for my son's Christmas birthday. You can't see it in the photo but it's quilted with an overall snowflakes pattern.
We plan on re-releasing the North Pole League applique patterns sometime next year.
Happy Holidays everyone!
