In our family, we've been Colorado Rockies baseball fans since 1993 when they came to town.
When purple was named the color for July and Joy added circles, spots, and dots to the challenge, I knew I'd be working with some Colorado Rockies fabric I had leftover from making my son a pillow cover for his birthday. Purple's our color and what better represents a circle than a baseball?!
Lots of squares in a checkerboard pattern.
The background is leftovers of the Tula Pink Fairy Dust
that I've used in my Crumb Hearts quilt.
It goes really nicely with purple!
This tabletopper was made for the table in between our comfy chairs in the family room, and fits it perfectly at about 18 x 13.
Dots for the backing and binding for the win!
And putting it to use already -
Also this week, I took these two fat quarters and turned them into something for our dinner table.
This grape print is from the fat quarter bundle of food fabric that I purchased last fall, and have been using to make new cloth napkins for us this year. So far, I've made an apple set, a banana set, and now the grapes.
The inside fabric is from Anna Maria Horner's Conservatory line.
I've made many sets of these over the years and they get lots of use at our house!
We haven't been able to go to a Rockies game at Coors field for a few years, but hope to get back there sometime soon. Until then, we'll remember the good times we've had there!
