Here's the quilt I finished in January. The block is called Propeller. You can find directions at The Colorful Fabricholic blog. I made these blocks for the 2019 Rainbow Scrap Challenge. You can see a picture here.
I decided it was time to take my quilt on the road to find some place different then our house and yard to take pictures. I was getting my 2nd Covid vaccine yesterday afternoon so we would go by a park or two, the hospital grounds, and be near the new Frederick Nationals baseball stadium. We chose the Fred Nat's stadium. The Nat's are the farm team for the Washington Nationals, the winners of the 2019 World Series. I am not a huge baseball fan but Pat is so I listen to games while I'm doing hand work sometimes.
After receiving my shot (in less than 30 minutes), we drove over to see the new stadium. Most of it wasn't available for us to go in. Here are the photos we were able to get.
We drove down the side of the stadium and found a place we could photograph and get some of the actual field in the view. Did I mention it was windy too?
Next we went back to the front to get a photo in front of crossed baseball bats.
The quilt shows up well in these pictures because it is so bold and geometric. The crossed bats is different... and it isn't totally finished yet. My guess is it will have a lot of beautiful flowers or shrubs below the bats when finished.
Next up we went into the Nats Store. I was still looking for a location for some fun photos.
Pat was looking for a new hat which he found.
I was wandering around trying to decide where else I'd photograph my quilt. Hum, a mannequin dressed in a Nat's Uniform, with a little stuffed dog with a Nat's leash and collar. That might work well.
Now, a close up of the quilt and quilting.
