    The first picture is the big side curve. I attached the tape I made around 3/4 inches by zigzagging down the center. Then the next two photos show the 4 inch stitches I made. Folded over about 1/4 inch and tucked the unsewn edge under the tape already sewn down. Blanket stitched around each "stitch" and finally down both sides of the tape. I am happy with the plan!
    Just WOW! This is a great idea to make for my daughter and her husband as a wall hanging in their new home!

    Maureen, thanks for posting a pic! We are doing the stitches pretty much the same. I like your background fabric - makes it look like a used baseball! I chose white as my background so I guess my baseball will be shiny new!

    I don't have an embroidery machine but my Brother machine will do an "eyelet" hole stitch.
    Yesterday at Joann's I picked up some black 1/4" twill tape as well as some dark red bias tape that I think I will be using for the stitching.

    I ran across this baseball quilt with free directions - was thinking about it for a nephew that is baseball crazy.

    Maureen, I would also like to know how you are doing it. I would love to make one. I would also like to see some pictures of what you are doing. I want to make one for my 11 year old grandson also.
    Thank you!,
    Anita

    It is for a 13 year old -- no batting -- just a throw for him to use while reading!! Makes his reading Grandma very proud.
    Maureen, did you cut out each "stitch" separately and stitching each one on? I don't see how else to do it. I'm thinking of using 1/4 inch black bias tape for center then cutting and stitching on each red stitch.

    Well, thanks a bunch, ladies... now I have something else to add to my bucket list! One of my sons is a part-time umpire, and the other worked for the baseball team at his university.

    I was thinking about your quilt and was wondering about ways to applique it. I was thinking (if you didn't already) to make a curved cut out, do your applique and sew it in. I have nothing to do today except think about other peoples projects.

    I had to look at the photos multiple times before I noticed the difference. I like the second one also, but to me it still looked like applique for the red laces, with a thinner black strip down the middle. I've seen the 1/4 inch iron on black bias strip that Pam Clarke used in a stain glass quilt. I think that would look good down the middle instead of a wider red strip. But hey, as many tiems I had to look before I could tell the difference, the child will not realize the difference.

    I made my sister a football quilt using her college teams colors in a rail fence then I scattered brown applique footballs over the top. It was easy and so cute when I finished that I had to do a Green/Gold one for my other sister.

    Yes, I did see that one but it seemed like a lot more work. I already made a round baseball pillow and did use the bias tape for the stitching, along with embroidery thread. I think if I applique the laces, I will "pinch" the ends to make them look laced.
